100% of every individual financial donation goes directly to program services and 0% goes to overhead.

Every nonprofit organization has overhead costs, including the Phoenix Dream Center. The IRS likes for nonprofits to keep the overhead costs to no more than 20%. We’ve been able to keep overhead at around 11% for years. 

Things like insurance, electricity, water, gas, fundraising and administrative staff are a necessary part of every organization. But overhead expenses aren’t something that every donor wants to support, and we don’t think they should have to. 

It had long been a goal of our fundraising team that 100% of all individual donations go directly to the program of the donors choice.

In 2018 we reached that milestone. 

That year through our social enterprise projects like our thrift stores, t-shirt sales, recording studio and facility rentals, we were able to cover all of our overhead costs without using any individual donations. 

What that means for every donor is that 100% of your donation goes directly to support the program of your choice. Our administrative overhead costs are all covered by business revenue and a private foundation grant.
