Our Leadership

Hands Across the Nations Canada is managed in its entirety by a small team of devoted volunteers. Their commitment ensures the lion’s share of donations goes directly to international projects. For HATN, successful financial efficiency means:

  • Operating costs are less than 10% of total expenditures;
  • No excess costs for professional fundraising assistance;
  • Fundraising revenues consistently exceed our fundraising expenses by more than 2.5 times.

Currently, HATN operating costs average 9% of total expenditures, fundraising expenses average 15%, and fundraising revenue relative to costs is above 2.5.

Check, check, check.

Join Hands, for humanKind.

Spread love, Across the Nations.

In addition to HATN Canada, HATN has local subsidiaries in both Bolivia (MANOS) and Mali (TEGEW) and they are responsible for coordinating our projects on the ground. These in-country agents are vital to our success: they research and implement projects, maintain constant communication with the communities we assist, and coordinate trips for Canadian volunteers.
