A registered charity organisation
It would be very untrustworthy to promise that every single cent reaches the project partners. Like in any other organisation which asks for donations, also at MIVA office costs arise (for example through marketing and administration). It is not possible to run an office without any costs. But since its foundation MIVA has made a big effort to use a high percentage of the donations directly for projects – in 2017 this amounted to 87,41%. Of course MIVA has to account for the use of the received money. The balance sheet is released in the internet and detailed annual reports are available at the MIVA office. The management of public finances is checked every year per certified public accountants. Furthermore MIVA is a registered charity organisation. Therewith MIVA is shown as a reliable and quality-conscious relief Organisation.
