Where your money goes

87% Programs and Emergency Aid

The vast majority of donations are sent directly to our partners to help families out of extreme poverty and to aid in times of disaster. 

3% Administration

Pays for rent, internet, and various other services which enables the work we do. Administration costs also covers our donor database and security to ensure that your information remains secure.

10% Marketing & Fundraising

Our supporters are an important part of who we are and what we do. Honouring and building these relationships is a priority. By investing in fundraising, we are able to raise more money to help lift more people out of extreme poverty.

Every dollar entrusted to us:

Mobilizes churches

We’re excited to see churches start to understand the potential God has placed in them to address poverty and injustice and become powerful agents of change in their local community. 

Transforms communities

Your donation works through local churches to make sure transformation takes place in the very heart of the community. Through Tearfund, you are helping communities build resilience to shocks and stresses, work for peace and unity, and build better futures for themselves and others.

Meets emergency needs

When disaster strikes, we respond swiftly. Your donations will help affected communities for the long term, working through local churches and partners to help people become resilient and thrive. 

Creates societal change

We call on people in positions of power and influence to ensure that their policies bring positive change for vulnerable communities, including those that are hardest to reach. We equip and empower communities to speak out and stand with them in holding governments accountable and lobbying them to address structural inequalities and injustices.
