84% percent of every dollar goes directly to programming costs. No more than 16% of each dollar supports administration and fundraising. Our accounting practices are established so as to track the use of designated gifts that require special funding reports, and funds are used as required by the donor.
Our Director of Finance, who oversees Finance and Accounting functions, meets at least quarterly with the Finance Committee of the Board of Directors to review the budget and financial controls. Our finances are audited by an external accounting firm on an annual basis.
