Financial integrity matters. That’s our commitment to you.

The cost of fundraising


We spend just 9.7¢ of every dollar we receive on fundraising efforts.*

This pays for all of our fundraising staff, print & radio advertising, printing & distribution costs for our mailings, fundraising events and online activities. Compassion does not, directly or indirectly, pay finder’s fees, commissions or percentage compensation based on contributions.

*Excluding any gift where 100 per cent of the funds are designated to program use (such as child, family and project gifts).
