FAQs

Where does my money go?

When you donate to FACT Alliance, we are committed to making sure your money is dedicated towards victim restoration and the fight against human trafficking and child sexual exploitation.

The money is distributed towards organizations that are actively building Restoration Homes, towards existing reputable homes or programs dedicated to victim aftercare, or towards fundraising initiatives.

Currently, FACT Alliance has no paid staff and does not utilize office space*. It is our intention to see that every dollar goes directly towards:

- Funding Aftercare
- Public Awareness
- Covering actual costs, not overhead or salaries

(*We realize that this could change as our organization and activities grow.)

How do I know you're giving the money towards good organizations?

We are honored and privileged to receive your donations and believe it to be our utmost responsibility to appropriately distribute these funds to homes and organizations that truly invest in the restoration of these victims.  To that end, we have established a FACT Vetting Committee that is comprised of multi-disciplinary experts in the field of child sexual exploitation.  This committee will review and screen all potential recipients of FACT funds.
