Our Budget

Grassroots Math

Funded entirely by individual donations. No grants.

No donor comprises more than 7% of our budget. This means losing one donor does not ruin us and we are not beholden to any single donor voice over any other donor voice.

Avg donation: under $100

Most common donation: $20

Automatic monthly donation set up by supporters add up to raise $18,720 a year.

We do not set our annual budget until after we have raised the money to meet that year's budget. No failed goals.

Hamomi-USA has one hired consultant. The rest are volunteers and unpaid interns.

Hamomi is a rare donor opportunity - small, reachable and values donor opinions. Got questions? Email us directly. Let's talk.
