How we use your donation
Since 2008 the yearly award of the DZE donation seal documents our transparent and responsible handling of donations. Our annual report publishes the current Annual Balance Sheet of humedica.
Use of funds by humedica in 2015
88,4 Cent of each donated Euro went directly into our humanitarian projects. The remaining 11,6 Cents were spent for administration, promotion and public relations. To use the largest possible share for our humanitarian work, we forego on paid advertisement, radio and TV commercials as well as all forms of online advertising such as display indicators or social media advertising.
We inform our friends, benefactors and donors via our websites www.humedica.org and www.geschenk-mit-herz.de, the social media channels Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as well as by sending out topic orientated newsletters to our interested target audiences. We duplicate our press releases via our own networks and the paid service provider Meltwater.
The revenue of humedica consists of private donations and contributions such as donations in kind or cash, inheritances, fines and membership fees as well as contributions of companies and foundations. humedica generates further income via public funding by the Foreign Office and by the Federal Office for Economic Cooperation and Development as well as by interest and property income.
We present a detailed record of the expenses and the exact composition of our income in our Annual Reports, which are controlled by independent auditors.
At the end of 2016 humedica employed its first chairman as well as 32 full-time employees, 13 employees worked part-time. humedica had also nine project employees in foreign assignments and seven workers in minor deployment as well as two trainees.
The work of humedica would not be possible without the engagement of the many volunteer helpers and intervention team members. By the end of 2016 134 volunteer coordinators and 489 volunteer practitioners had registered for the participation in humedica emergency relief interventions. Another 500 volunteers supported the work of our German headquarters in Kaufbeuren.
The compensation structure of the full-time humedica employees is based on a house pay scale, which orients on both the tariffs of the public social and health care sector and the compensation of the regional labour market of the free economy. The following annual salary structure was developed in cooperation with our auditing company:
- General management: 48.000 to 59.000 Euro
- Field management: 40.000 to 43.000 Euro
