As our community work is volunteer-based and our teachers have their own way of supporting themselves there is little need for bloated administration costs. As a result we have more available funds to use for our projects and your contributions goes further.
However investment in our growth and services is key to our programs success and our real goal of helping people help themselves. We don’t focus on our overhead percentage but we do continually evaluate our programs and do our best to allocate funding to what will encourage the greatest overall benefit.
Check this video of Dan Palotta explaining why the focus of charities needs to change from overhead costs to social benefits for some insight into our reasoning.
