The Forgotten International is both a grantmaking and operating foundation. We provide small grants to grassroots organizations and selected children as well as run our own internal programs designed to advance our mission. As an operating foundation we raise funds for our publications and film projects and our Compassion Education curriculum and program in local schools. The time and cost associated with these awareness building projects are program costs. Our administrative costs include maintaining our office, our time used to fundraise and direct our social media, and the time we take to oversee our grantmaking abroad and maintain our children’s sponsorship program.
It should be noted that funds that are given to The Forgotten International for grassroots organizations and specific children are never used for our administrative costs. TFI gives 100% of program donations to their respective programs or to projects that need it most. We are an entirely donor-funded organization, as such our donors make all of our work possible, and we are eternally grateful.
