Give Kids The World is committed to fiscal responsibility and being a good steward of the support and resources we receive from our generous corporate heroes and dedicated individuals. Our number one priority is to ensure we are able to fulfill every special child’s wish to visit Central Florida for as long as there is a need.
Of each dollar we spend, approximately 91.7 cents goes directly to our families for their cost-free, magical vacation. Very few charitable organizations reach and sustain this level of administrative and fundraising efficiency, and we work every day to maintain this success.
