When it comes to running a huge world-changing operation, we make every penny count.

On average for every £1 received by Oxfam, we invest 82p on our humanitarian, development and campaigning work. We invest 8p to raise further funds, and we invest 10p on support and running costs such as paying the salaries of staff who work all year round to deliver our work and who ensure we are effective and accountable. (These figures are taken from Oxfam GB's 2016/17 Annual Report.)

We understand that when you make a charitable donation, you want to know exactly where your money is going and we pledge to be clear and transparent when it comes to spending your contributions.

Oxfam's life-changing work would not be possible without generous people like you. We appreciate every single gift we receive and we work hard to ensure that not a penny is wasted in our fight to end poverty and injustice.
