MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We ensure than as much of each donated dollar goes to helping those in need. Administrative and office costs are minimized to fractions on the dollar in-order to maximize the impact of our contributors donations and grants. Our profit, nay, our gain; is the well-being of those who are made well, fully fed and uplifted.
Using Funding Properly
At IMPACT WITH HOPE we value your funding and want to see that as much of what is donated goes to those in need. We do have some administrative costs that we incur for shipping, office expenses, advertising, etc. to keep our organization running but on average 98¢ of every dollar that comes in to Impact With Hope is spent directly on those in need.
So whether its purchasing food for packing events, water for areas hit by natural disasters, medical care & supplies, shelter, or whatever that need is, you can be assured that your money is making as big of a difference as it can when you donate to IMPACT WITH HOPE.
In 2017 the American Red Cross claimed that an average of 9¢ of each dollar donated was used for administrative costs. Though this may not seem like much these nine cents start to add up to big dollars. We have to think about this as a percentage instead of merely metallic
cents. 9¢ is equivalent to saying 9% of every dollar is spent on administrative costs. That means for every $1000.00 the Red Cross Gains in donation, they keep $90.00 for administrative costs. This is of course a necessary function of a non-profit organization such as the Red Cross. There are operating costs such as employee wages, location leases, fundraising costs and employing those that ensure the appropriation of funds.
IMPACT WITH HOPE has a much lower cost margin which means more per dollar is spent on those who are in need of it. Impact with Hope reported in 2017 that 2¢ of every dollar was spent on administrative costs. Again we should look at this as a percentage. So 2¢ being the equivalent of 2% means that out of a $1000.00 donation about $20.00 goes to administrative costs which is nearly $70.00 less (comparatively to The Red Cross). That is more than 75% less in administrative costs!
Donations made to a similar mission such as but not limited to disaster recovery could be moved from one need to another provided the existing need has been met or in the, event another need becomes greater.
