ChildFund Australia is focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for children, their families and the wider community. We believe in keeping administration costs down so more funds can go to implementing programs that lift children and communities out of poverty and help them become safe, healthy and empowered.
Out of ChildFund Australia’s total expenditure in 2019-20:
- 83% of funds went towards implementing or running international programs, and educating communities about our work and its impact.
- 16% was invested in activities to raise funds to support our program work.
- 5% was spent on administration and accountability costs that are necessary to efficiently run the work we do. It includes staff costs for finance and organisational development, as well as audit fees and insurance.
ChildFund is accredited by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and, as a signatory to the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) Code of Conduct, we are committed and fully adhere to conducting our work with transparency, accountability and integrity.

We want every child to be able to say: “I am safe. I am educated. I am heard. I have a future.” Because every child needs a childhood.
Ways you can donate
The way your donation helps children in poverty depends upon how you give to us. Make a tax deductible donation before 30 June, and we’ll use your donation to support our priority projects across Africa and Asia.
We understand you may want more control over how your donation is used. Our range of Gifts for Good is a great way to donate that helps children in areas that matter to you, and support their growth and future. Our charity gifts include:
One of the most popular ways to give, is actually the most exciting. Becoming a child sponsor isn’t just a donation, it’s a journey. You’ll provide a monthly donation to support the child, and supplement their household income.
Your sponsorship will keep them in school, provide them with healthcare, food and clean water, as well as a lifelong companion they’ll treasure. It’s a small act that makes a big difference, and if you become a child sponsor before June 30th, any donations made will be tax deductible.
