Finances and Board of Directors
Based on the funds used for aid work, Finn Church Aid (FCA) is the largest Finnish development cooperation organisation and the second largest provider of humanitarian aid. We operate in around 15 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.
In 2015, FCA fundraising amounted to 47.3 million euros. Our finances are founded on four major pillars: parish and church contributions, private donations, government funding and institutional funding.
In 2015, we used a total of 42.6 million euros for relief work and other activities.
In total, 36.4 million euros were used for international aid operations. Domestic operations and general administration costs were 6.2 million euros. Domestic operations include fundraising, communications and training. General administration includes the head office, the finance division and overheads.
The focus of our work remains on Africa, which received 39.8 percent of all operation spending, a total of 17.0 million euros. For programmes in Asia and the Middle East, we used 6.5 million euros. The share of Latin America was 5.4 million euros.
Government support constituted 33.3 percent of funding. A little under a fifth of support funds came from parishes, and the share of private individuals and communities was over a quarter of our income.
FCA wants to ensure that the available funds are used as productively and responsibly as possible. As one of the main development cooperation organisations in Finland, we have developed an internal audit supported by the board’s inspection committee. At the same time, risk management has become a part of our normal operational planning and assessment. FCA is audited by KMPG.
