MADRE is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that receives support from individual donors, foundations, community organizations, and religious communities. Since our founding in 1983, MADRE has delivered over $30 million dollars' worth of support to community-based women's groups in Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, Asia, and the United States.
MADRE works hard to keep our administrative costs low. We use the highest possible percentage of our donations to support our programs with women and families who are struggling to meet their immediate needs and win justice for their communities. We rely on volunteers and donations from around the country and are always looking for ways to maximize our impact and minimize our costs.
MADRE is committed to transparency and is happy to make our financial information available to our supporters.
