According to the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance’s Standards for Charity Accountability, charities should keep their overhead rate at 35% or lower. The Children’s Project International has operated at a fraction of that rate. We pledge to continue to scrutinize every area of our business to keep our overhead expense well below the industry standard and to spend your money efficiently.
The India-based activities are conducted by affiliate organization, The Children’s Welfare Charitable Trust, an independent registered trust in India with 12A tax-exempt status. The Children’s Welfare Charitable Trust is a charitable organization that provides immediate response to emergency medical needs and supports long-term humanitarian assistance programs in India and in neighboring countries, irrespective of race, caste, creed or political persuasion.
