How does CWB do so much with so little?

The vast majority of our funding, 85 percent, comes from individual donors with an average one-time donation of about $60. We have generous honorary board members who give more, along with a cadre of generous artists who donate time…TONS of it!

We’re able to do so much with so little by receiving in-kind donations and the constant support of our volunteers, totaling around $200,000 a year worth of in-kind hours and effort. We build partnerships and participate in coalitions, sharing costs as they arise. Working with our partners and those that support our efforts, we’re able to put 95 percent of your generosity directly into the field.

Since we are entirely funded by donation, our annual budget does fluctuate from year to year. For more information about that, check out our GuideStar here. Learn more about how we broke down the costs of our 2016 project tour to El Salvador and our 2017  project tour to Haiti.

pssst– if you’ve already worked with us in some capacity, feel free to leave a review of your experience for other potential donors 🙂
