How We Use Our Funds
In fiscal year 2013, 89.4 percent of all expenditures went to program services. That percentage is an average for all of Save the Children


Save the Children has a proven track record of using donations efficiently and effectively. From school children who send their allowance for relief efforts to the largest philanthropic donors, we cherish all of our supporters. You can be assured that Save the Children uses the valuable resources donors have provided in the most cost-effective ways possible.

Our independently audited financial statements consistently show that nearly 9 out of every 10 dollars we spend goes to programs and services for children and families in need.
