A Legacy of Service to the United States and Beyond
Quota International , a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1919, is an international service organization that links members of all ages, occupations, and nationalities in a worldwide network of service and friendship. With a motto of "we share," Quotarians are known especially for their service to deaf, hard-of-hearing, and speech-impaired individuals and disadvantaged women and children. Quota members share the values of serving and encouraging others, developing friendships, and promoting international understanding .
Quota's service arm, the We Share Foundation, also a 501(c)(3) organization, is committed to supporting international volunteerism to help people of all ages with hearing and speech disabilities and disadvantaged women and children. Working with more than 6,500 Quota members, who offer an estimated 400,000 hours in volunteer service and raise more than $1 million each year for charitable causes, the Foundation serves thousands of underprivileged people through caring and compassionate programs that span the globe.
Working in 14 countries--Aruba, Australia, Canada, Curacao, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Sint Maarten, Suriname, and the United States--the We Share Foundation supports its volunteers' efforts through a host of services: 1) One-on-one technical assistance; 2) encouragement and recognition through international awards programs; 3) communication and publicity services; 4) practical aids for effective volunteer work, including newsletters, a Web magazine, e-bulletins, guidebooks, and an award-winning Web site (www.wesharefoundation.org); and 5) a variety of service programs for clubs.
The Foundation also mentors volunteers using award-winning leadership training. With our proven method of mentoring, leaders learn encouraging strategies that build teamwork. They, in turn, mentor others, thereby increasing the impact of their training.
Since 2001, Quota International and its We Share Foundation have won a combined 50 national and international awards for its Web site, programs, and publications including two prestigious Blue Ribbon Awards for program excellence from the United Nations. In addition, the humanitarian efforts of Quota International and the We Share Foundation were recognized with a United Nations award given to those organizations that have made a special contribution to international human rights. The Foundation is also privileged to have its annual International Photography contest judged by official U.S. White House Photographers.
