Father Frank's Kids is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We have no paid staff, therefore very little administrative overhead. Nearly 100% of the funds that are donated to our organization go directly to those in need.
Our program is fully financed through donations provided by the local community. In 2005, over $90,000 in donations was collected, including a single grant of $50,000 from one individual. No other foundations currently contribute to our financial sucess.
We have been fortunate to have the strong support of individuals within our local community since inception in 1997 (incorporated in 2004). Substantial donations like these have helped to provide funding for larger projects. For example, we helped build a 600-seat amphitheater used for social gathering at one of the orphanges. In another case, we purchased a large industrial washing machine which is used to wash the clothes of the entire orphange. These are key projects for us and can reach beyond the basic needs of shoes, clothes, and other articles.
