Aid for Africa is classified as a 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS and is committed to maintaining low management and fundraising costs.
Aid for Africa takes 6 percent of the funds it receives on a member’s behalf. These funds help support some of the costs for its accounting and outreach activities and other member services. As a result, Aid for Africa distributes 100 percent of the money it receives and has been designated to members. In addition, Aid for Africa has made small grants to member organizations since its inception. The size and nature of these grants have varied with need and Aid for Africa’s budget.
