Who We Are: Financials & Accountability

Financials & Accountability

St. Vincent de Paul is very accountable for what we say and do. We utilize a business-like approach to our work. That’s how we measure and manage our programs and evaluate their outcomes. Moving into the future, we will build on our more than 90-year record of working to help neighbors. We will enhance opportunities to strengthen our work by staying totally focused on our mission and by carefully managing all of our operations in a business-like fashion.

About 90 Cents of Every Dollar to Programs

We know every donation makes a difference in someone’s life. We work hard to keep expenses low, so we can invest your donations in programs to help people. As a result, we are pleased we are able to keep about 90 cents of every $1 donated to us in programs with about 10 cents in administration and management. Learn more about our pledge of 90 cents of every $1 donated going to help people.
