Your money is in safe hands

Last year, over 90,000 generous supporters trusted Tearfund to help those in the most extreme poverty – bringing change in the places of greatest need.

Reasons to trust Tearfund

In our disaster work, it's our adherence to international standards and the quality of our response, reflected in the accreditations we hold, and the endorsements given to our work.

In our work through churches, we are committed to transparency and accountability that gives donors certainty their money gets directly to the places of greatest need.

In our financial management it’s the 77 pence (2019/20) in every pound spent on life-changing work with the poorest.

In our faith, it’s our commitment to follow Jesus where the need is greatest.
