How we use the money you donate: pie chart

How we use the money you give us

For every £1 we spend:

67p is spent on humanitarian and development programmes and strengthening our global federation

20p is spent on fundraising

10p is spent on support costs (running the organisation)

3p is spent on campaigning for change

These figures are taken from our expenditure in 2019.

We’re committed to keeping our supporters happy and being open and honest about how we fundraise. To find out more you can read our supporter promise.

Why we ask for a monthly gift

All money helps, and we’re grateful for whatever you feel you can afford.

A one-off donation is a fantastic start, but the kind of extreme poverty that millions of women and girls are facing are long-term problems, and they need long-term solutions.

A regular gift from you means we can commit to being there for girls like five-year-old Jui in Bangladesh, who desperately need us, both now and in the future.
