Stewarding Your Money

Here at Compassion we’re passionate about doing things with excellence, including the way we manage our finances. We work hard to ensure donations are used strategically, for the greatest benefit of children in poverty. 

From our fundraising activities to our programme activities, we’re accountable for every penny we spend. Our field offices have both internal and external audits regularly and our own office here in the UK is audited externally each year. As a UK Charity and Limited Company, all our accounts are filed with Companies House and the Charity Commission.

Last year, 86.5% of our income was spent on charitable activities. 80.1% to directly benefit children in poverty and 6.4% for support costs. 


Compassion UK Gift Aid continues to be used to directly fund the child development programme at 24 Compassion projects.  


100% of child, family and project gifts go to the Compassion-supported child or young person. Our local project staff and church leaders will help choose a gift that will really make a difference to those receiving it.
