WE Charity empowers change with resources that create sustainable impact. We do this through domestic programs like WE Schools and internationally through WE Villages. The unique partnership with ME to WE, a social enterprise, ensures that WE Charity achieves a remarkable rate of financial efficiency, with a historical average of 90 percent of donations over the past 10 years going directly to charitable efforts at home and abroad. We serve both.
ME to WE is mandated by its bylaws to donate a minimum of half its net profit to support WE Charity, while the other half is reinvested to grow the mission of the social enterprise. Since 2009, ME to WE has made $20 million worth of cash and cost-offsetting in-kind donations to WE Charity. In 2018, they donated 90 percent of their net profits.
Both WE Charity and ME to WE are independently managed, overseen and financially reviewed.
WE Charity’s financial budget and audited reports operate from consolidated financial data from WE Charity Canada and WE Charity USA. WE Charity prides itself on keeping its fundraising and administrative rate as low as possible. For more information on how this is done, please visit Financial FAQs.
