What happens with donations

MAGNA responds to global humanitarian crises by using resources efficiently.

At its inception, MAGNA voluntarily pledged to use at least 80% of the funds raised for project operations in the field and only 20% for fundraising and administration. On a long-term basis, MAGNA has been fulfilling its commitment and in 2018 we spent up to 97% of our revenue on health projects.

As a MAGNA donor, you contribute to health care for children and their family members who need it urgently. Thanks to your contributions we provide regular medical examinations, operations, long-term treatment or vaccination.

How do we do it?

MAGNA implements its assistance directly, builds its own teams and does not use other entities. MAGNA teams provide health care, organize training for medical staff in communities and respond to immediate emergency needs as well as long-term humanitarian crises. MAGNA will use your money directly for its projects.
