We pride ourselves on ensuring resources are used responsibly. That’s why we can send 81 cents of every one dollar you donate directly to uprooted families, giving them hope for a brighter future. In addition, 15 cents of every dollar goes to support the implementation of our programs around the world—with only 4 cents going towards management and administrative costs.
