Financial Information

As an organisation working towards addressing the root causes of poverty and inequality since 1951, we are committed to being 100% transparent in our work to our donors, partners, supporters, and the communities we work with. We know it’s important to you that your generous donation is spent wisely with maximum impact on the lives of people affected by humanitarian disasters, poverty and injustice and It’s important for us too.
Rest assured, Oxfam India is a completely transparent, accountable and responsible organization and we value our partners and supporters immensely and lay complete transparency in how we use your funds.
It’s because of supporters like you, Oxfam India is able to make a significant change to the lives of lakhs of people in need.

For every rupee received, 75% goes on our core programme work, 16% is spent generating future funds and 9% is spent on administration and governance. 

a) 75%: Ensures we can provide:
1. Humanitarian response during Emergencies and natural disasters.
2. Long-term development programmes around Education, Health, Gender Justice, Land reforms and Water governance. 
3. Campaigning and advocacy that changes the policies and practices which cause poverty and inequality in the first place.

b) 16%: Ensures we are doing everything we can to raise funds from different types of donors and to let the public know about our work. This has a high return on investment because it encourages people to support what we do, meaning we can reach even more people from marginalized communities.

c) 9%: Ensures we work in the most effective and efficient way, and that the money donated is spent wisely. Our financial reporting is carried out to the highest international standards and our full set of independently audited accounts are available below.
