How your donation is used

If you give to one of our nominated appeals or name a specific programme or country which you would like to support, we will ensure that at least 85% of your gift will go to that specific area of work. The balance will be used to cover essential UK-based monitoring and programme assistance costs integral to a programme’s success and enabling effective donor reporting and accountability.

Where a particular programme or appeal is over-funded (a wonderful sign of success!), we will allocate your gift to a similar programme which has urgent funding needs. If you have added gift aid to your donation, this too will be allocated to our areas of greatest need at the time it is received.
