Trust and transparency is important to Plan. We are one of the few global organisations to publish combined worldwide financial statements that detail our fundraising and spending.
Despite the difficult economic conditions, Plan's income stood at €634 million in 2011-12 – an increase of €42 million on last year. Plan spent €623 million in 2011-12.
Most of Plan’s income comes from child sponsorship. This is a stable and predictable source of income, which means we can plan and carry out long-term development projects.
Plan also receives funds from other sources which make up an increasing proportion of our income, which includes income from grants.
