Financial Independence and Accountability
Independence Helps Us Go Where We’re Needed Most
Support from individuals like you is essential to our ability to operate independently, and allows Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiéres (MSF) to respond at a moment’s notice to the most urgent emergencies, often in countries and regions that are otherwise forgotten.
MSF strives to operate efficiently and to minimize fundraising and administrative costs. Between 1995 and 2011, MSF-USA allocated more than 85 percent of its expenditures to MSF’s social mission–programs and public education activities. Maintaining this standard is a high priority for us.
