All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that Convoy of Hope has complete control over the use of all donated funds. Our Board-approved policy is that all gifts designated for a specific project be applied to that project, with up to 10% used for administrative and fundraising expenses. Occasionally we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need. It is our policy to meet the needs that lay before us, so that our stated mission is advanced.
