Projects and programs are mainly funded through private donations (more than 80% from individual donors and 20% from public and institutional donors).

Today, we rank among the largest NGOs for development cooperation in Germany. Our work is supported by tens of thousands of donors and many associations, groups, companies, schools, foundations, church- and charitable organizations, communities, etc. support us financially and through volunteer work. Celebrities take advantage of their fame to publicize our concerns. The Kindernothilfe Foundation and Kindernothilfe-Organizations in Austria, Switzerland and Luxembourg are increasing our reputation in the German-speaking countries and supporting our project work.

In recognition of our responsible use of donations, we have received the DZI donations seal of approval on an annual basis since 1992.
