How Your Money is Used

When you give to Tearfund Australia, your funding is allocated towards a more just and compassionate world in three main ways:

Funding allocation

84% of every dollar goes to programs and community engagement.




Programs and community engagement



1. Programs: Investments in life-changing projects through Tearfund Australia’s partners

We allocate funding to local Christian agencies around the world that are working to address the root-causes of poverty and marginalisation. Priority is given to projects that work to improve rights, interests, needs and capacities of the poorest and most marginalised people around the globe.

Health And Nutrition

2. Discipleship and engagement with the Australian church

We believe that God calls all his followers to pursue justice as they live out their faith. We allocate a portion of each gift to support our engagement and discipleship with the Australian church as we walk alongside churches and with Australian Christians to understand and incorporate principles of Biblical justice in their own lives.
