How much goes where?

Here's a year-to-year average of how we invest and distribute our funding.

Confirmation Content

  • 15-20% | Low admin and operating costs - always - thanks to a small team, pro bono office space and wholesale suppliers.

  • 25% | Roughly one-quarter goes to vital fundraising. When we invest here, our total income goes up and we have more funding to give to field partners overseas. 

  • 40-80% | We allocate the highest amount possible for our trusted field partners and our areas of work in Ethiopia. This does vary depending on exchange rates, fundraising investments and the Australian/Ethiopian economies.
