Funding for the Padrino Children’s Foundation comes from individual donors and grants. Nearly every cent donated is used in the direct care of children. Our board is entirely volunteer and uncompensated. Our medical team members are paid for the services they provide as contract professionals, in some cases at discounted rates.
Donations are used to pay for the clinical services provided by our dedicated medical team and other medical professionals. Some services are charged at a negotiated discounted rate. Other expenses include medical aids, supplies, and transportation for the care of the children. A very small budget is dedicated to overhead expenses which include rent, accounting software, website maintenance, and fees related to our 510(c)(3) non-profit organization status.
