* Please note that the monthly contributions outlined above are representative of the work we do however we work in a volatile and uncertain context and your donation maybe redirected toward other needs. The examples above are indicative of what your donations will go towards. We also from time to time have sponsors who will cover for the entire need of a project for 3 to 6 month periods, for example a sponsor may commit to funding all legal expenses for family reunification resulting in excess funding being redirected to emergency response or educational needs. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Better Days does accept in-kind donations either directly or through our partner organizations. If you have in-kind donations please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with information on the donation and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will my donation be used for?
Once you select a support category, your donation is placed into a funding pool related to that category and cover expenses related to that category. Funding pools without any activity in 3 months will have their balances transferred to our general reserve to support the organization as a whole.
How else can I support?
There are many ways to support our work, and our students, including sharing our work on social media and to speading awareness by talking about the situation on Lesvos to friends, family, and colleagues. What ultimately matters is not how we offer our support, but that we do it at all. If you’d like more information on Better Days or to talk about fundraising support please contact us at email@example.com
How much is spent of administration?
In 2018, approximately 19% of our annual budget was spent on admin costs, and in 2019 this decreased to 13%. We expect this proportion to further decrease in 2020.
Will I receive reports on what my donation was spent on?
Better Days will release reporting on the donations and spend in the dedicated funding categories above as part of its annual financial reporting process, and make this reporting available on our website.
