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 mandate, 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 FY16, 83.9% 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.
