Income 2013

War Child’s total income in 2013 was € 24.4 million. This is € 3.9 million higher than our budget for 2013 and € 1.7 million higher than our total income in 2012.

Private fundraising

War Child’s income from private fundraising activities totalled € 11.7 million in 2013, which is € 0.7 million lower than the previous year and € 0.9 million below budget. The fall in income from private fundraising is primarily due to a 5 percent drop in structural individual donors. At the end of 2013, War Child’s constituency of individual donors included slightly more than 100,000 Friends. Income from legacies decreased by € 0.5 million in 2013. This drop in income is offset partially by a € 0.2 million increase in income from foundations (mainly from Adessium and Liberty Foundation) and an increase in income from schools. The target group Kids & Schools received specific attention in 2013, resulting in income growth and successful national events, for which War Child was the designated charity.

Third parties

Income from third parties increased by € 1.4 million to € 3.6 million in 2013, which is € 1.9 million above the original budget. This can be explained by the additional € 1.8 million awarded by the Dutch Postcode Lottery in addition to their structural contribution of € 1.4 million already budgeted. The additional grant is earmarked for a project implemented in the occupied Palestinian territory, whereas the structural contribution is unrestricted.


The increase in income from governments of € 0.9 million (compared to 2012) to reach € 9.0 million (€ 2.8 million over budget) is mainly attributable to income from United Nations organisations (such as UNICEF and UNHCR) for War Child's programme in Lebanon for Syrian refugee children. Furthermore, in 2013, War Child spent € 0.9 million less of its MFS II grant from the Dutch government than in 2012. Of the total five-year grant of € 21 million, a budget of almost € 8 million remains available for 2014 and 2015. As agreed in the monitoring protocol, a separate report on the MFS II programme is prepared for the Dutch government.
