Our aim as CityHope Disaster Relief is to keep administrative costs to an absolute minimum to ensure that donor funds are used directly for disaster relief efforts.
We achieve this through the support of our donors in kind. This includes CityHill Church paying for all rental, utility and related administrative costs, and partners paying for the logistics & transport costs, and Hope Kit buckets.
Furthermore, our general and administrative costs as a percentage of expenses amounted to just 33% in the year to February 2017 and 30% in the year to February 2016. These costs (including items such as bank charges, storage rental, salaries & marketing costs) were covered in full by a single donor allowing all other donated funds to be used entirely for the purposes of disaster relief.
