How do our Emergency Response efforts work?
During emergencies, there’s no time to waste! Putting a humanitarian relief campaign together takes time that victims of disaster or conflict may not have. That’s why we often pledge or commit an amount before turning to you to raise funds.
When your donations go over the amount we pledged, we either return the excess into a General Emergency Response fund so that we can respond quickly for the next emergency, or we run a phase II of the campaign if the need is still urgent.
Your donations often cover what we spend, but not always. When we’re short, we use funds from the General Emergency Response pool.
In an emergency, we do our best to use all our funding for that particular emergency as soon as possible or in phases. We believe in transparency with our donors and value every penny you trust us with. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about where your donations go!
