Can I give donations for a specific location or disaster?
In order for us to prepare for future disasters by positioning aid around the world and to react quickly when disasters do take place, we are not usually able to accept time or location-specific donations.
By giving ShelterBox a general donation, you are helping us use your money to make the most difference to families in desperate need of shelter.
How much of my donation will directly help to provide families with shelter?
Around 71p of every pound raised is used to give families a place to call home after disaster. The remaining 29p is invested to raise future vital funds so we can help more families around the world in desperate need of emergency shelter.
We work this out in the same way as many charities in the UK, using financial results from the last three years to make sure events in any single year don’t have a distorting effect. Find out more about how we spend your money.
