Because D’Addario & Co. underwrites ALL of our operating costs, 100% of donations go directly to the programs and our cause. “How much of my donation is really going to the programs?” remains an unfortunately common refrain in the world of nonprofits. However, we can confidently say “100%” and mean it, as your trust in the organization itself is as essential to our mission as the programs we support.
