1How much of my donation goes to end hunger by feeding people?
We strive to make it 100%. The reality is that payment processing and transaction fees make it slightly less. We promise that 90% of the funds go to programs aimed at ending the systemic cause of hunger or feeding people. We call the funds you donate at FastPrayGive.org each month “program funds”. Marketing and administrative costs help us to be successful; we call these “non-program” funds. If you would like to donate to help us with non-program costs visit our Administrative Cost Sponsorship page.
