Stewarding Your Money
Here at Compassion we're passionate about doing things with excellence, including the way we manage our finances. We work hard to ensure donations are used strategically, for the greatest benefit of children in poverty.
From our fundraising activities to our programme activities, we’re accountable for every penny we spend. Our field offices have both internal and external audits regularly and our own office here in Ireland is audited externally each year.
How your sponsorship money is used
It costs €30 a month to sponsor a child. For every €1 given to Compassion Ireland, at least 80c is granted to Compassion International to directly benefit your sponsored child.
At least 80% of the Tax Relief refund from the Revenue Commissioner is used to support children living in poverty through RESPOND Initiatives, specific grants and child ministry.
CHILD, FAMILY AND PROJECT GIFTS
100% of child, family and project gifts go to the beneficiary. Our local project staff and church leaders will help choose a gift that will really make a difference to those receiving it.
Our Financial Report is available here so anyone can see a detailed breakdown of our income and expenditure.
