Financials

All donations include an allocation of 15% to critical core support costs. This helps fund:

  • A strong management team to steward the organization and build responsive, community-led programs

  • Due diligence of current and future partners and programs

  • Monitoring and evaluation of programs

  • Communicating with supporters about their impact

  • Regulatory compliance with federal and state agencies

  • Fundraising, grant-writing, and capacity building

  • Mental health and healing advocacy and awareness


The allocation of 15% is below the nonprofit industry standard of 35% and will be reviewed each year to determine if, together with grants and other fundraising, it is enough to cover actual costs or needs to be revised in the future
