How we raise funds

In 2015-16, Plan International’s global income was €810 million.

We have 2 main income sources: child sponsorship and grants (donations from institutions and corporate donors). In 2015-16, €363 million (44%) came from sponsorship funding while €274 million (33%) came from grant funding. The remaining €173 million came from other sources such as disaster appeals.

Our 21 National Organisations  – from Canada to Japan, and India to Colombia – raise funds. These are then allocated to the 52 countries where we run programmes. Some of these 52 countries also raise funds for work in their own country.
