We understand why people are often hesitant to give money to organizations they may not be familiar with, particularly when it's not clear how your funds will be used. This section of our website is therefore focused on providing you with a clear understanding of how your funds will be distributed, as well as how funds have been used in the past. We also welcome questions, so please feel free to contact us at any time.
All funds raised through Eat So They Can are managed by the GVN Foundation. The GVN Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States, with special consultative status with the United Nations ECOSOC. The GVN Foundation was founded in 2005 and works to support vulnerable women and children in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The GVN Foundation's annual reports can be downloaded here.
When you create your ESTC event on our website, you will be given the opportunity to select one of our three causes - Greatest Need, Immediate Needs or Sustainability Projects. With each cause, the GVN Foundation partners with local grassroots organizations to distribute the funds you raise. You can read more about our causes here.
The pie-chart below illustrates the breakdown of how funds are used. A minimum of 70% is always directly used for the cause you select to support. These funds are passed on to our partner organizations to directly support vulnerable women and children.
