For every dollar given to ELCA World Hunger, 70.5 cents supports relief of chronic hunger and poverty and development of communities around the world. About 8 cents is spent on relief and development for chronic hunger and poverty in the United States. Efforts to educate ELCA members about hunger issues and advocacy receive 11.6 cents, and a little more than 8 cents goes to administration and fundraising expenses in the Chicago-based office.
A large portion of money raised by ELCA World Hunger supports the core budgets of two key partner organizations, The Lutheran World Federation and Lutheran World Relief. This helps ensure that they can make commitments to long-term projects as well as respond quickly when emergencies occur.
