Our Expenses

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.

*The costs of delivering US$126,186 worth of aid to Gaza is -US$8,291 (-HK$64,499)

Put simply, we have a cost base of 6.6%.

However, every cent of -US$8,291 is paid for by us, out of our own pocket – while 100% of what is donated by our donors goes to the people of Gaza.


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 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.
