What has happened?
Our charity foundation is currently experiencing a serious lack of funds to cover administrative costs such as the office renting, household running, salaries, taxes, transport expenses, telephone bills etc. Although there are funds available on the charity accounts for the foundation projects, we cannot use this money for organizational purposes.
Why is that so important?
We have never had any boss or grand sponsor or political interests. Our foundation has worked thanks to thousands of donations from different people and organizations. Just like any system the Happy Child activity requires certain source funding. There is a constant threat of our Internet connection being cutoff for nonpayment, failing to manage the office rent and our employees suddenly looking for additional ways of income to support their families. Our foundation office is also the place for the Club of foster parents’ meetings, the storeroom for humanitarian aid and hiking equipment, and where all the meetings with parents of sick children take place etc. There is no well-coordinated team work possible without the office. A sharp decrease of administrative funds threatens the closure of the Happy Child charity foundation which will result in shutting down several projects such as supporting sick children as well as children with disabilities, finding families for orphans, assisting children’s hospitals, building the Children’s Village, supporting sick adults and many other important goals.
How does it work?
The Happy Child empoloyees process a large amount of information and look for optimal solutions for various sorts of problems every day. Since the first day of work in 2007 tremendous efforts of the website deti.zp.ua and the Happy Child charity foundation have succeeded in raising more than 2,811,129 US dollars.
We believe in wise charity and that even the smallest donation can make a difference. For example, according to the financial reports for 2014, we managed to raise 694,716 US dollars US dollars with the initial 27,137 US dollars.
We follow the world’s practice which states that 15-20% of raised funds may be used for administrative purposes when we determine our level of administrative costs. We are constantly trying to to decrease our administrative costs and in 2014 we used less than 10% and in 2015 – a bit more than 5 %.
How can you help us?
