My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for ChildFund International, Richmond, VA, USA
I'm a former staff member who proudly worked with ChildFund for more than 6 years, serving the most needy communities and children. ChildFund has been driven during the past 5 years under the current President to achieve even higher levels of accountability and transparency, to ensure that maximum funds are spent on program work in the field. I can honestly say that based on my broad exposure to organisations in this sector, I believe that ChildFund is one of the most transparent and most 'lean' in terms of operational overheads. I'm confident that having worked at Executive level in ChildFund, I have the real picture of the operational management costs - and I happily recommend my own family and friends to sponsor children through ChildFund knowing that the money is going to the kids. This is an outstanding organisation with real integrity and lots of heart. The passion and commitment of the staff around the world has to be experienced to be understood.

Encourage a slightly more bold approach to expanding the excellent work that ChildFund does to more countries where there are greater needs for children and communities
