At World Vision, stewardship is integral to everything we do — we recognise that every resource entrusted to us can transform children’s lives.
As part of our stewardship, we optimise resources and distribute them where they are needed most. We also carefully monitor and review programmes and costs, use donations and grants for their intended purposes, and look for ways to leverage funds for maximum impact.
In addition, we continually strive to keep our overhead rate low. In FY2015, 84.5% of our total donations were used for programmes that benefit children, families, and communities in need.
Our effectiveness has earned the trust and support of donors, churches, corporations, institutions, and government agencies around the world.

We thank God for increasing World Vision Singapore’s total income from $16.4 million in FY14 to $17.7 million in FY15. This growth in income has enabled us to impact 791,013 children and beneficiaries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
In addition, your timely donations to our disaster relief efforts have enabled us to provide life-saving aid to more than 1.3 million people affected by the Nepal Earthquake, Syria Crisis and Typhoon Hagupit in FY15.
According to Singapore’s charity regulations, the total expenses incurred due to public fundraising appeals in a financial year must not exceed 30% of total donations collected through the public appeals in that year.
