At the Gaza Fund, we have a strict 100% Donation Policy.
To ensure this goal, we at the Gaza Fund are tracking all our expenses*, which will be paid for, by us, from our own pocket, rather than the donations received.
Fair Disclosure: We are 100% funded by the founder, a UK Citizen (and HK resident), and do not have access to any external philanthropic donors, governments or groups.

HELP US COVER OUR COSTS
The Gaza Fund has a 100% Donation Policy, with no ifs and buts.
Having said that, delivering aid cost money, ranging from finance & IT to monitoring aid is being properly distributed as well as audit fees and token payments to volunteers.
Still, our goal is to minimise our expenses to 5%, but not at the expense of turning a blind eye to inefficient distribution or slippage.
To support us therefore, kindly consider adding up to 5% to every donation you make (optional).
Else, we will continue to fund The Gaza Fund out of our own pockets, for as long as we possibly can, iA.
