The American House Foundation is a 501(C)(3) corporation established in the United States of America for the purpose of (1) providing financial assistance to charitable organizations engaged in humanitarian relief efforts in central, eastern, and southern Europe, and (2) setting up and financing NGO-private sector joint programs providing direct material assistance to the poor.

Using the existing infrastructure of relief agencies such as the Red Cross, we are able to ensure that over 96% of the funds donated go directly to those most at risk in the form of direct aid and that programs get up and running within a week or two of the decision being made to proceed.

Working with the Hungarian Red Cross we have set up a series of NGO-private sector prototype programs in Hungary that are easily expanded with the involvement of third party donors and/or replicated by other NGOs and companies eager to combat growing problems of poverty and homelessness in Hungary.
