What we want

Every donation giving for life

When you become a DevA member you are not simply giving a donation, you are joining a movement of people excited about turning the tables on the traditional model of charity. Development Accord is a simple, but effective giving platform through which every donation is put to work, actively generating income through investments, allowing us, as a community, to commit to our partners long-term, through stable, predictable, sustainable giving.

A family for every child

We want to see orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children raised by loving families and communities. It's our aim to grow a movement of people committed to better understanding the importance of this model of care.  We whole-heartedly support the clear movement in development practice and growing international research endorsing family and community based care models as best practice for the care of children. For these reasons we are proud to support the work of Children in Families, Cambodia, through the impact donations to the DevA Fund.

We have been on the ground and seen this model at work - changing kids' lives and transforming entire communities.  We will continue to advocate for this model of care and support locally-run organisations to do so, in many cases, as they seek to move away from orphanage and institutional care.

Engagement and Transparency

As a DevA member you will be provided with online tools that allow you to track your Donor Units and access clear, transparent, regularly-updated financial and project reports. You'll also be able to access information relating to your Donor Unit investment, the returns being distributed, project information and updates.

Zero-Cost Administration

DevA will always seek simplicity in its organisational structure and administrative processes.  We will also endeavor to attain as close as possible to a Zero-Cost structure, particularly in terms of administration costs. At present, members of the DevA board and corporate sponsors meet all administration costs including but not limited to company registration, printing, web hosting and consultancy. This means that every dollar donated is put to work in the DevA fund to generate returns for our partner communities.

Any fees associated with the operation of the investment platform are met internally in the fund before distributions are calculated. These operational fees may include fund administration fees, bank fees or management expense ratio fees.

We want to grow a community of engaged supporters.  We have developed a range of online tools that allow you to track your donations, their growth and the impact they are having for our partner communities.
