In 2010, the revenue of Doctors Without Borders USA totaled $264 million – all of this raised through private contributors, such as individuals, foundations, and corporations. Private support is essential to our ability to operate independently and to respond at a moment's notice to the most urgent emergencies, often in countries and regions that are otherwise forgotten.
Doctors Without Borders has not received or solicited funding from the US Government since 2002. Internationally, we limit government funding to less than 20% of total funds raised. We strive to keep this figure as low as possible.
Doctors Without Borders USA does not accept money from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, extraction industries (such as oil, natural gas, gold and diamonds), alcohol and tobacco companies, or arms manufacturers. Doctors Without Borders will not accept contributions from corporations/industries and their respective corporate foundations whose core activities may be in direct conflict with the goals of the medical humanitarian work of our organization, or in any way limit Doctors Without Borders' ability to provide humanitarian assistance.
