Our Financial Track Record

The Salvation Army is well-known for making efficient use of the resources that are entrusted to us. Last year in the Carolinas, approximately 88 cents of every dollar spent were invested in our Corps Community Centers and Social Services programs — only 12 cents were spent on fundraising and management expenses. When you give, you can be sure that we are looking for the most effective ways to put your resources to work.

For more information, our annual report is available to read online or via a PDF download.
