How do you help people in my community?
ADRA International primarily allocates funding to the Adventist Community Services (ACS) for U.S.-based programs. Funds are primarily used for emergency management projects, but also for community development projects. ACS operates under a Memorandum of Understanding with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the American Red Cross, and many state emergency management agencies. It is also a founding member of the interagency compact called National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) and the affiliated state VOADs.
Why do you need my support?
Every gift makes a difference to us. Your generosity will help ADRA continue to improve the quality of life for millions of people around the world this year. ADRA relies on the donations of people who care about the needs of others and feel compelled to help them.
How can I be sure that you will use my money wisely and won't waste it?
ADRA administration and staff are conscientious about financial responsibility. Our goal is to make certain that the maximum amount of money possible goes to those who need it. That is why ADRA ensures that more than 90 percent of private donations is used for direct humanitarian services.
