Your fundraising can transform lives. In more than 40 countries around the world, Mercy Corps is on the ground providing emergency relief and helping people build stronger futures for themselves, their families and their communities. Supporters like you make this critical work a reality.

Your fundraising and its impact

Your fundraising will go where the need is greatest around the world, however, should you wish to support a specific project or country then please just let us know. We will work together to ensure your fundraising has the highest impact.

For every pound you raise 87% will go directly to our programmes in the field. 4% is reinvested into fundraising, making your efforts go even further, and 9% goes on necessary administration.
