Find out more about ShelterBox's remarkable story

ShelterBox is acutely aware that the work we do would not be possible without the many thousands of donors who so generously support our work.

To our donors we are committed to offering:

VALUE FOR MONEY - We aim to put as much of your donation directly into aid as is possible. We are a lean organisation that benefits from the tireless efforts of a strong and extensive support base of volunteers. This is key in enabling us to keep our overheads low and to spend about 90% of our income directly on charitable work - a far higher proportion than most charities.

DONATION TRACKING - We aim to connect donors directly with the people they are helping. By giving each box a unique number, and carefully recording where each box goes, donors have the opportunity to track their box to its final destination through the website. You can Track Your Box here.

RECOGNITION - We feel that the generosity of our donors should be recognised and celebrated. To this end, a roll of honour of all our donors can be found by clicking here.


Remember, about 90% of your donation will go directly into charitable works, a higher proportion than most charities.
