Logistics expenses alone can absorb up to 80% of the cost of providing humanitarian aid, and by concentrating on this one area, we are able to reduce costs for others and enable them to PROVIDE MORE goods and services to the people they are trying to help.
Global Samaritan Resources is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, supported almost exclusively by private donations,
grant funding, in-kind contributions, and volunteer service.
GSR is able to provide roughly $1.50 worth of goods and services for every $1 we receive
in monetary donations. We are able to stretch every dollar by leveraging the
relationships we have built in our over 20 years of service.
VOLUNTEERS contribute an average of 3,000 service hours annually. They serve in our warehouse, in our office, at special events, and during crisis campaigns.
SERVICE CONTRACTS for our logistics services make up around 5% of our annual budget. Logistics services can get tricky. Global Samaritan's logistics experts are trained to handle your goods from origination to destination, and every detail in between. We also offer storage leases.
DONATIONS from people like you comprise the bulk of our funding. Monthly commitments, one-time gifts, and sponsorships of our special events allow us to keep our facilities staffed, forklifts humming, and details coordinated for moving things from here to there on trucks, trains, boats and planes.
Our warehouse inventory is over 95% IN-KIND CONTRIBUTIONS. These items include medical equipment and supplies; educational materials and furniture; and office equipment and furniture. Partners providing this inventory include medical professionals, medical supply companies, hospitals, schools, corporations, business associates, and individuals who have a heart for the Global mission.
