Home » About us » Ways to donate

At iAID we rely on financial support from people like you to fund our work – individuals, families, corporate organizations, foundations and trusts.

Our mission to harness the power of innovation and technology to save lives, alleviate suffering and empower communities to live the kind of life they value will never be achieved through our work alone. Partnering for impact is a key component of how we work.

We see our donors as ‘angel funders’ who support pilot programs that once up and running and meeting key performance indicators help us attract additional funds from bilateral and multilateral institutional donors including the governments of the countries in which we operate, partner governments, organizations that form part of the United Nations, World Bank, World Food Program, European Commission and other not-for-profit and charitable organizations.

Making Your Donation Count

A minimum of 85% of funds we raise will always be spent directly on projects. About 7% of your donation goes towards administration because without our expert staff, accountability measures and computer infrastructure, we would not be able to manage our programs or deliver our life-changing work. About 8% of your donation is reinvested in fundraising because sharing information about the valuable work of iAID through our communications and outreach work helps us to continue to raise much need funds.
