Today Edmund Rice Development is working with people living in poverty in India, Bolivia, Peru, the Philippines and nine countries across Africa. We focus on the liberation of people and communities through community development, education and advocacy.
We are committed to using donations to Edmund Rice Development to work with people in the world’s poorest communities to transform lives.
We work hard to make sure we achieve as much possible with the funds we receive in order to ensure they have the maximum positive impact possible on the project, programme or people you are supporting.
A minimum of 90% of donations to ERD goes directly to partners and projects in the field, with the remainder used to contribute to administration, governance and fundraising costs. ERD receives grant funding for other operational expenses allowing us to maximise the impact of your donations to the projects you support.
We are committed to ensuring accountability in our operation and make sure we are fully transparent about how we use your donations. To find out more about how and where your money is spent, please read our Donor Impact Reports.
Edmund Rice Development is committed to ensuring that all our communications and dealings with the general public, our supporters and partners are of the highest possible standard. We listen and respond to the views of the general public, our supporters and partners so that we can continue to improve.
