We at Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute take seriously our role as fiscal stewards of the gifts entrusted to us by our members. Each gift helps transform the lives of people struggling with hunger.
We try to keep our overhead rate low and work to maximize the use of our funding. Below is a summary of how Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute spent their funds in 2019:
Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute are committed to efficiency and transparency. Each year, we share four types of documents with our membership and the public:
We communicate with our members and prospective members in various ways such as email, postal mail, phone, and other means. Our intent is both to request financial contributions and to educate our members and the public about hunger in the United States and abroad, and to inform members about actions they can take to help end hunger. These efforts help advance our mission to end hunger. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidelines and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance, Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute each allocate a portion of fundraising costs to program services.
As required by auditing standards, the audits are for Bread for the World and its affiliate, Bread for the World Institute.
Tax returns for the past four years are available for your review.
We’re proud of our accomplishments. Together, our members, activists, and staff bring hope and opportunity to millions of people who are hungry. Our annual reports provide a summary of the year. We include a snapshot of our activities, accomplishments, and finances.
We at Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute strive to maintain the highest level of accountability and transparency.
