Will 100% of my donation go to the local partner I have chosen to support?

Yes, your entire donation will go directly to the specific partner you have chosen. Alternatively, you can give to the Exodus Travels Foundation as a whole and we will distribute all of your donation to our trusted partners, where we feel it will have the most impact. Exodus covers all administration costs so 100% of your donation will go to our work on the ground.

Is The Exodus Travels Foundation owned by Exodus Adventure Travels?

The Exodus Travels Foundation is a completely separate entity to Exodus Adventure Travels and other financial supporters. The Exodus Travels Foundation is an independent, non-profit organisation with a board of directors who determine strategy and monitor progress. The Foundation is registered with the UK Charity Commission (Charity number 1182265).

Do you take donations from countries outside of the UK?

We certainly do! We are based in the UK, but our donors come from all over the world. You can choose to donate in a range of currencies. However, donations are eligible for a tax deduction in the UK only.

Is my donation tax deductible?

Donations from the UK are eligible for tax deduction. As most of our partners are small, grassroots organisations that are not recognised as international charities, we can’t offer tax deductions on donations made from outside of the UK.

How are the donations managed?

The Exodus Travels Foundation has a board consisting of senior staff at Exodus Adventure Travels and at least three Trustees from external organisations. The board ensures all beneficiary organisations and partners are assessed and monitored according to approved criteria. Our accounts are audited by an external, independent auditor and published annually in our annual impact report. Click here to read our latest report.
