In fiscal year 2014, thanks to the generous support of donors, we raised $130,000 US for our charity programs. $55,000 of those funds were raised through the Combined Federal Campaign and state campaigns; in these campaigns donations were received from federal employees and state employees, respectively. $29,000 of our funding came from a grant from Dining for Women, and was targeted towards supporting wastepickers in Pune, India. The remainder ($46,000) was direct support from individual donors.
