Arrels seeks to be a responsible, efficient and opened entity with the economic incomes it receives. Most of these incomes arrive thanks to all the unpaid donations from partners and donors who are part of a wide and secure social base that allows us to act without any constraints.
The total income in 2017 amounted to 3,342,671.87 euros.
In 2017, the income has mostly come from partners’ payments (regular donations) and from occasional donors (one-off donations) who have supported Arrels’ labour (44.01%). They also come from local and autonomous administrations (32.77%), from some companies (2.93%) and from some collaborating foundations (2.41%).
The total of expenses for the year has amounted to 3,341,429.21 euros. 76.09% has been invested in directly attending to homeless people, especially in covering housing and social support needs (54.35%), in services of first reception (17.03%), and in our occupational workshop (4.71%).
The remaining budget has been used to organise awareness-raising and political advocacy campaigns (11.35%) and to guarantee the maintenance of the entity’s structure and the coordination of the voluntary team (12.56%).
