When you are compelled to give by your compassion and care for others, it’s important to know that your gift will be in good hands. Our proven processes and good stewardship of financial resources help us do more with less, due in part to donated medical supplies and the substantial participation of volunteers. In fiscal year 2016, every gift was multiplied 10x to have an even greater impact around the world.
Medical Teams International is committed to good stewardship. When your gift is multiplied, it has greater impact across the globe. Together, we can break barriers to health.
Medical Teams International is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our federal tax id number is 93-0878944. We are a non-denominational, faith-based, non-governmental agency.
How we measure efficiency
Overhead (or efficiency) is defined as the percentage of total expense that is used for general, administrative, and fundraising costs and is calculated as follows:
General, Administrative & Fundraising Expenses / Total Expense
While including GIK in Total Expense figures is common industry practice, we believe it is important to clearly show the impact and to show both ratios.
A large percentage of our total expenditures come from donated supplies and materials used in our programs, but the valuations we use are estimates only and can distort the calculation of efficiency. The resulting overhead percentage can be misleading and cause donors to believe that, for example, 96 cents of every dollar goes directly to programs versus other expenses.
