Fiscal 2013 was a pivotal financial year for World Vision, as private cash donations grew a solid 6 percent and a surplus for the year helped replenish depleted reserves.

Check out World Vision’s letter from the President and 2013 Annual Report brochure, available now.

Want a sneak peak at some highlights? In 2013, World Vision:

– Helped transform the lives of nearly 4.3 million children registered in child sponsorship programs worldwide,
including the 1.2 million children who were supported by 761,559 caring sponsors in the U.S.

– Responded to 88 humanitarian emergencies around the world, including drought in Africa, the Oklahoma tornado, flooding in Colorado, and the deadly typhoon in the Philippines

– Helped 845,230 children and adults in 10 African countries gain access to clean water through our combined water, sanitation, and hygiene efforts, including the drilling of 1,263 new wells

– Disbursed more than $757 million in microloans to 930,305 hardworking people in 36 countries—impacting more than 1.2 million jobs and 2.8 million children

    I would like to know more about the innovative channels that are being developed to increase sponsorship revenue in future years…these are mentioned under overhead rates in the report.

    My thanks for your response in advance!

      Hi Shelley, Thank you for your question. World Vision is always looking for new ways to reach potential donors to inform them about our child sponsorship program. The innovation channels mentioned in the 2013 Annual Report refer to developing new partnerships with retailers and artists to bring more help for children. We also are developing ways to reach potential donors where they are — literally. Last year we launched the World Vision “Experience” semi-truck that is touring churches, conferences and state fairs for large audiences to learn more about our mission, our work and the positive impacts of child sponsorship. Blessings, Beth (for WOV)
