Provision Project by the Numbers

In 2017, your donations to Provision Project helped 135 women, funded an average of $468 each. In 2018, through August, your donations have helped 112 women, funded an average of $290 each. Requests for help exceed our available funding. Because of that, Provision Project decided to decrease our average grant amount in 2018. We have helped 22% more women to date in 2018, but our average grant amount has decreased by 33%. 10.2% of overall donations go to overhead. 63% of that overhead is used for donation management (credit card fees and donation tracking system). Provision Project has no paid staff or office. Our board and leadership is 100% volunteer. Every applicant is thoroughly vetted before funding is considered. All funding is paid directly to the company owed, rather than to the applicant. Through August, funding has been provided in the following ways: 29% Medical 26% Utilities 23% Transportation 18% Housing 4% Food/Emergency Needs
