At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do — because we recognize that every resource entrusted to us can transform real children’s lives.
As part of our stewardship, we optimize resources and distribute them where they are needed most. We carefully monitor and review programs 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 fiscal year 2012, 85 percent of our total revenue went to programs that benefit children, families, and communities in need.
Our effectiveness has earned the trust and support of more than 1 million donors, thousands of churches, and hundreds of corporations, institutions, and government agencies around the globe.
