In the past financial year, 70% of funds raised for Act for Peace went to supporting our international and domestic programs that benefit communities threatened by conflict and natural disaster. A large part of this went to specifically supporting refugees, including Syrian refugees in Jordan, where Act for Peace distributes rations almost identical to the rations you’ll be eating during the Ration Challenge.
Around 20% of our expenditure was invested in fundraising – fundraising is important so that we can generate the donations that drive our vital work around the world. It also includes the cost of gaining long-term supporters. And 10% was spent on accountability and administration – this is essential to the day-to-day running of the organisation, and includes our supporter relations, finance, administration, HR and management teams.
