  • 20% Goes to the project where you are assigned.

  • 30% Is used to legally administrate and sustain the The Voluntario Global Network of Projects: this includes lawyers, paperwork, certifications, meetings, and to cover any urgent needs the projects might have.

Why donate to volunteer?

Voluntario Global is a non-profit organization (NGO) registered in Buenos Aires, Argentina under number 0000 515. We do not receive financial assistance from the Government, nor corporations. Therefore, our funds come directly from the volunteers who register in our programs. Donations are spent according to community needs under the strict supervision of our local coordinators.

Where does your money go?

Thanks to the volunteer's donations, we have been able to begin operating a Social Savings Fund. This has allowed to finance computers, books, and many necessary supplies to go on and grow our Network. In addition, we have also financed a home construction loan for a family that lives in Villa Soldati, the construction of a kindergarten in Barracas, in 2010, the opening of the Laundry Project, in 2008, and the Pacheco Project, in 2014.
