Where do your donations go?

Your donations are allocated to 3 areas: untied programs; fundraising; and administration. This is called pre-allocated budgeting.

Pre-allocated budgeting means that a charity sets aside funds in advance for fundraising purposes. Across the average life of a donor (3-5 years), funds spent on fundraising are no more than 5-8% of the charity’s annual budget. In addition, 10-12% is allocated for administrative expenses.

75% - 80%     is allocated to charity programs.

5% - 8%         is allocated to charity fundraising expenses
                        (bank fees, charity licensing fees, insurance, office expenses etc.).

10% - 12%     is allocated to charity administration expenses
                        (3rd party appeal set-up and management).

0%                  is in-kind voluntary contributions
                        (board of directors, administrative assistants and fundraising consultation).
