Why do Volunteers Pay?
Sankalp Volunteer is an independent organization and
therefore does not receive government subsidization to fund our
volunteer efforts. We fund our projects and achieve our social
goals solely from the fees paid by our volunteers. These fees
are used to directly fund the cost of your time living in India,
and are also invested in long-term support of our various social
projects you work on.
The fees you pay are not only used to cover costs of services provided directly to you, but are also used for behind the scenes management of our quality volunteer programs.
The fees you pay have a carryover effect on the local community long after you go home. This money directly funds the project you are working on, and in turn, many others. Without you and the thousands of volunteers before you, the progress and changes we have made in the lives of so many would not be possible.
Where does the money go?
Although we want to be as transparent and as open as possible with you about where your money is going, it is difficult to determine the exact allocation of each individual's contribution. However, it is possible to calculate the average distributions which are shown below, along with explanations as to why the funds are used in this way.
Direct Expenses: 40% average
Indirect expenses: 20% average
Advertisement and web promotions: 15% average
Project Development: 20% average
Taxes: 5% average
