- Maximum 5 % of the total expenditure may be spent on administration.
- Maximum 10 % of the total expenditure may be spent on fundraising and communication.
- Minimal 90 % of the expenditure must be spent on the project.
In 2015 93,7 % of the expenditure was spent on the project. The costs of fundraising and communication were 5,9 % of the total expenditure. This is far below the target of 25 % which is maintained by the CBF and below our own target of 10 %. The costs for management and administration were less than 0,5 % of the total expenditure.
