Share Our Strength - FY 2010 ExpensesAt Share Our Strength, we’re focused on maximizing every donation to help the most kids possible. In fiscal year 2012, Share Our Strength had total operating expenses (excluding in-kind and the New York City Wine & Food Festival) of $31.1 million in pursuit of ending childhood hunger in America. Approximately 71%—$22.1 million—of these expenses were invested in the No Kid Hungry strategy to feed kids where they live, learn and play.

These investments, which led to more than 34 million additional meals being served and other major 2012 milestones recapped in this report, are made possible thanks to judicious investments in fundraising, which make up 25% of our expenses. In order to end childhood hunger in this country, solutions need to be scaled quickly, and our spend on fundraising reflects the urgent need to expand our work to reach as many kids as quickly as possible.

The remaining 4% of expenses cover costs such as financial management, human resources and technology. More information about Share Our Strength’s financials is available in Share Our Strength’s 2012 Annual Report.
