Where does it go? We use your general funds to pay rent on our drop-in center ($3000/month), pay dedicated and caring staff who provide critically needed guidance counseling, manage our volunteers, manage an amazing quantity of in-kind donations so they can go to our clients, and more. We are small but mighty.
In 2018, 74% of your donations went to client programs. On average, we spent $593 per unique client served in 2018. Your gift of $21 allow us to deliver an hour of guidance counseling to a homeless young adult.
We invested 8% of your funds to manage our wonderful volunteers, who saved us the equivalent of 3 full-time employees and brought us $127,000 of in-kind donations. We spend $2.52 per volunteer hour and $12.21 for every $100 in-kind donated food or material in managing the material flow.
We spend 7% of funds raising awareness of the need for services like ours for homeless youth. We invested 4% of your giving in training future leaders through our internship program. We spent 3% on overhead and 4% on raising funds. Fundraising costs are $3.84 for every $100 raised.
