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

The cost of fundraising


We spend just 9.1¢ 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.
