Spending/Efficiency

On average, more than 98 cents of every dollar donated goes to meet community needs.

We achieve this exceptional efficiency by running a lean operation, with only essential staff, and by subjecting every purchase to several levels of scrutiny. We also benefit from the Gates Endowment. Begun by Bill and Melinda Gates and generously funded by thousands of donors, the earnings of this endowment help offset our core expenses and keep donations flowing into our community.
