My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for World Vision International, New York, NY, USA
I sponsored a child for several years. I just now read the review of expense. Am I misunderstanding or is very little going to charity and the majority of money going to administrative expenses?
I've convinced many people to give to this charity so I hope I'm wrong.

Dear Dima: Thank you for your concerns, and for your past support for children through World Vision. We take seriously our responsibility to use donor funds effectively. As Charity Navigator notes, 85.6% of funds are used for programs and just 4.6% for administration, so we are able to get the majority of donor contributions to work helping children and their communities. More details are available under the "Current Rating" tab of this page. Additionally, World Vision's Chief Financial Officer Larry Probus explains our funding model at: http://www.worldvision.org/content.nsf/about/why-donate?open.
