Terre des Hommes has various sources of income. Nearly half is obtained through fundraising. This includes our donators and, for example, our shops. In addition, Terre des Hommes receives subsidy from the government. Over the years, approximately one quarter of our income was acquired through government subsidies. The National Postcode Lottery (Nationale Postcode Lotterij) and the Vriendenloterij (a charity lottery in the Netherlands) also contribute greatly to making our projects possible. Terre des Hommes feels that it is important to have various sources of income in order to minimise financial risks.
