Frequently asked questions


How much of my donation goes to the project I have chosen?

Financial integrity matters to us. We take your trust seriously and are committed to faithfully stewarding the funds you give. No less than 80 per cent of funds raised will be used for program activities and no more than 20 per cent will be used for fundraising and administration. You can give with confidence knowing that every dollar is used to maximize impact on behalf of children living in poverty. You can learn more about our finances at compassion.ca/finances.
