Share Our Strength ensures that every dollar donated has a direct impact on our nation’s children. We accomplish this critically important mission by making targeted investments that leverage enormous community resources across the country. In fiscal year 2011, Share Our Strength had total revenues of $64.6 million and operating expenses of $59.9 million in support of the No Kid Hungry program. Approximately $46 million, or 76% of total operating expenses, were invested in Share Our Strength’s program activities that connect kids facing hunger to healthy meals served in their communities.
Share Our Strength’s investments in best in class fundraising efforts to support the No Kid Hungry program, which represented 18% of our 2011 budget, have resulted in the organization achieving significant growth since 2008 and provided the strong, sustainable funding base needed to accomplish our bold goal of ending childhood hunger in America. The final 6% of our 2011 budget were general and management expenses, which includes essentials like technology, infrastructure and communications efforts to raise awareness of hunger issues and to mobilize a network of more than 250,000 activists, working to end childhood hunger in their communities. We are proud of our smart investments and of the important results we’re seeing across the country.
