Gawad Kalinga is committed to give added value to every contribution you give by attracting multi-sectoral partners here and abroad to participate in our work. With GK communities as the platform for convergence, our partners - rich and poor alike – have the opportunity to dream and build together.
We call this creative leveraging.
When you give your financial contribution to build a village infrastructure for instance, your contribution triggers counterpart resources in land and land development, sweat equity from the GK beneficiaries themselves, professional services from professional volunteers (architects and engineers), and the dedicated community organizing and program implementation by the caretaker teams.
Hence, every dollar you contribute unleashes other resources, and what you give is multiplied at least four times over in terms of direct benefit to the poor!
Over time, the on-going development also attracts other partners to come in and provide other needs of the community, depending on their expertise and resources. It is also our commitment to allocate nothing more than 10% for the Foundation’s administrative expenses, to make sure that what you give is able to translate to more direct benefits to the families in the GK villages.
This is how we build every community, brick by brick. Every contribution is significant. You are our missing brick.
