Decoding the 100% donation


We believe being completely transparent about where your donations go is essential to the fight against malaria. But it might come as a surprise to some we ensure 100% of the money you donate will buy bed nets. After all, every net requires other expenses: administration, distribution, and so on.

So how are these costs covered? First, many companies and individuals help in important ways and do so for free. Our list of supporters gives an idea of how many groups work behind the scenes to ensure donor money goes directly to nets. Second, to cover the few costs we do have, a small group of trustees and private donors contribute. Thirdly, organizations distributing nets cover the distribution costs.

In such a way, every partner in malaria intervention can address malaria the way they know how. Companies fund the services they are familiar with, distributors cover the costs of their work, and donors provide the nets they know will matter. This process ensures every participant knows they are helping meaningfully, which only strengthens our work. Importantly, it means funds donated for nets do just that, buy nets.

If you want to help in a way other than donating (as those listed on the People to Thank page) please contact us.

 

Catalyzing further action


Whilst the nets we fund are important, as each net protects two people, catalyzing further action is equally important.

For example, a lot of progress has been made in Phalombe District. Concern Universal has just completed a distribution of 20,000 nets in Phalombe District, Malawi and the following information has just been received with exceptionally good news about further nets from a government stock of nets that, by all accounts, had remained undistributed for some months. The initial distribution of Against Malaria nets has catalysed further distributions using the same standards and methodolgy established by our distribution.
