We distribute the money fairly to where it is needed most. When you donate money to a project, half of the donation goes directly to that project. However, a smaller portion goes into the overall pot of all projects and will be distributed to all projects in the campaign after Christmas.
This means that every donation helps in several places. Fundraisers that go well support those who lack attention despite great need. You don’t have to decide which of the many problems you want to fight with your donation. You can simply choose which project is most important to you and we will make sure that the others don’t go away empty-handed.
50% of the money will go directly to the project you have chosen and will make a direct contribution to support, protect or evacuate people there.
35% will be distributed to other projects in the campaign should they not meet their fundraising goals. In this way, we ensure that none of the projects, and thus the people who rely on their support, go away empty-handed. In this way, we ensure cohesion among the projects, because we do not fundraise against each other, but with each other. An overview of these projectscan be found here.
15% will go to the LeaveNoOneBehind Emergency Fund. In the past year, we have seen in Afghanistan and Ukraine, among other places, that it is often a matter of acting quickly. Through this Emergency Fund, we were able to launch projects such as the Kabul Airlift or the Ukraine Hub within a few days, helping over 1000 people from thesen countries to evacuate. In addition, we have supported over 100 organizations in the last 3 years. You can find an overview of the grants here.
This is how #StrongerTogether works.
