Where Your Money Goes
We rely almost entirely on contributions that government, corporations and individuals donate to UNHCR. We receive a limited subsidy from the United Nations General Assembly for administrative costs.
In Canada, donations from the Government of Canada, corporations, foundations and individuals like you totalled CAD $73.4 million last year—more than 2% of UNHCR’s global operating budget.
What happens to your money when you donate to UNHCR Canada?
We pride ourselves on ensuring resources are used responsibly and efficiently to benefit displaced people around the world. That’s why we can send 86 cents of every one dollar you donate directly to uprooted families living in dire conditions, giving them hope for a brighter future. See our 2014 Global Report for the full financial report.
