The 100% Model

When Romanian United Fund began, we made a bold promise: 100% of public donations would go directly to fund our Community Partners and their projects. Since we treat the community projects and operations sides of our business differently - separate purposes, separate fundraising goals, and separate bank accounts, we can guarantee that every public dollar donated ends up in the where it's most needed. And so far, more than 25,000 people from 50+ countries have given in this way.

Transparency is one of our Core Values. Read our Statements.


So, how do we pay our overhead?

(operational and fundraising costs)

From day one, we’ve relied on our Main Sponsor, on our Members and on a small group of generous private donors called Founding Angels to fund all of our operating expenses. It’s not always easy, but it’s an approach we believe in deeply. And year after year, our commitment to transparency inspires support from passionate donors, enthusiastic fundraisers, long-standing brand partners, and loyal volunteers who believe—like we do—that building the Romanian community start with Philanthropy.
