It is not possible to raise money and make effective efforts without costing anything. In order to achieve both acute and lasting improvements for people with disabilities living in poverty, we must invest some money in administration - that is, management, planning, marketing, coordination, follow-up and quality controls.
Administrative costs are a prerequisite and a guarantee for the money to reach out and make a difference and for us to be able to work long-term. We use 10 percent of your contribution to necessary administration.
Everyone should be able to participate in development cooperation, regardless of any disability. Approximately 17 percent of our costs are expenses for accessibility adaptation, such as sign language interpretation.
MyRight's fundraising policy regulates how MyRight seeks and receives financial support. The purpose of the policy is to clarify how we relate to fundraising work, and to strengthen our donors' opportunity for transparency in our fundraising activities. To achieve transparency in fundraising, MyRight's employees, members and others who participate in our fundraising work follow the fundraising policy below.
MyRight's fundraising policy is based on the values that the organization stands for and MyRight should only collaborate with actors who stand for the same values.
To ensure that the money really goes to the right things and is useful, we have staff on site in our partner countries who follow up the business in close dialogue with our partners. The staff conducts several financial and results-based samples annually, follow-up visits to funded activities, and reviews the partner organizations 'results reports and the local auditors' reports.
Planning and evaluation meetings are held regularly together with the partner organizations. In all our operations, risk analyzes and risk management plans are carried out to minimize the risk of corruption and fraud as well as the risk of not achieving set goals.
