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 €679 million in 2012-13 – an increase of €45 million on last year. Plan spent €704 million in 2012-13.
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.
