This page explains how we use donations made to INF/UK.
If you are giving to a specific project (or other restricted funds):
Where we raise funds for our partners’ work in Nepal (restricted funds), at least 85p of every £1 given to INF/UK is spent directly on charitable activities serving poor and disadvantaged people in Nepal. This funds our partners’ work to deliver healthcare, community development and disaster relief programmes.
The remaining 15p funds support costs including governance, personnel, office, fundraising, and finance functions – all of which enable us to operate in a professional manner, and mean we can support our Nepali partners in ways other than purely financial giving.
This also applies to gifts to our Programmes Fund, which can be used by any of our Nepali partners at the discretion of INF/UK management (e.g. initial commitments to new projects).
If you are giving unrestricted funds:
Donations to be used where the need is greatest help fulfil INF’s vision of life in all its fullness for poor and disadvantaged people in Nepal, and cover some of the UK costs of running the charity.
Our UK-based team works with Nepali partners to ensure the effective and efficient delivery of programmes in Nepal, as well as engaging with supporters and raising vital funds.
Unrestricted giving helps us develop fruitful relationships with new and existing partners, delivering projects in 2022-25 that will benefit at least 35,000 vulnerable Nepalis (plus additional disaster response activities, which could easily double that figure). These donations also help us achieve growth, as we hope to be sending over £900,000/year to our partners in Nepal by 2025.
Here is a brief summary of our total expenditure, as reported in our latest annual accounts:
