Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute take seriously our roles as fiscal stewards of the gifts entrusted to us by our members. Each gift helps transform the lives of people struggling with hunger.

We try to keep our overhead rate low and work to maximize the use of our funding. Below is a summary of how Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute spent their funds in 2021 and 2020:

Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute are committed to efficiency and transparency. Each year, we share four types of documents with our membership and the public:

  • Annual audit of our financial statements
  • Tax returns
  • Annual Report
  • Performance ratings by a few charity rating organizations

We communicate with our members and prospective members in various ways such as email, postal mail, phone, and other means. Our intent is both to request financial contributions and to educate our members and the public about hunger in the United States and abroad, and to inform members about actions they can take to help end hunger. These efforts help advance our mission to end hunger. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidelines and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance, Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute each allocate a portion of fundraising costs to program services.
