Our Finances

Save the Children has a proven track record of using donations efficiently and effectively. From children who donate their birthdays in lieu of gifts to the Government of Canada, we cherish all of our supporters. One of our top priorities is to be cost-conscious, ensuring maximum impact for children who urgently need our help.

Our independently audited financial statements consistently show that more than 8 out of every 10 dollars we spend goes to programs and services for children and families in need.
