Global Nutrition & Empowerment (GNE) is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are a Guidestar Silver participating organization. All members of GNE are volunteers. Donations are accepted, acknowledged and are tax-deductible in the US. We make every effort to keep overhead costs to a minimum. These include insurance, public relations and supplies. Vitamins that we distribute have been supplied by a grant with Vitamin Angels. Trips by members and volunteers to our project sites are self-funded through donations. All expenditures in our projects are overseen by the board. These include electronic devices for education, program production costs, shipping and guide services.
The 2015 earthquake relief budget was kept separate. Those monies were used for emergency food and shelter supplies, the construction of 23 temporary replacement schools and the construction of one permanent school addition and a community development center.
