We work hard to keep our administrative costs as low as possible. We are proud to say that we devote 76% of our income to programs services. Only 12% of our income is spent on administration and 12% on fundraising.

This means that for every dollar donated to Pacific Whale Foundation, 76 cents goes directly to our programs. Your contribution truly makes a difference on behalf of the oceans!
