UnitingWorld works in partnership with indigenous churches that are deeply rooted in their communities. Our projects are guided by committed and resilient local people who are best placed to identify sustainable solutions to the problems they face. To make the best use of your donations and get the best outcomes for the communities we serve, we invest in good management practices in Australia and with our overseas partners. This means ensuring the careful planning, oversight and evaluation of all projects, along with transparent and accountable use of all funds. UnitingWorld uses approximately 10% of funds raised to pay for the accountability and administrative expenses of coordinating projects with our local church partners.
In the event that funds raised exceed the amount needed for a certain project, funds will be used for other UnitingWorld projects.
UnitingWorld is accredited by the Australian Government and is a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID). As signatory to the ACFID Code of Conduct, we are held accountable to the highest standards of governance, financial transparency and effectiveness in our work.
