Yes – we are committed to complete transparency. Before you submit your donation, the app shows you an exact breakdown of Halo’s administration fees (lower than most registered charities) and what gets to the person in need.
We are an externally audited not-for-profit and aim to keep our fees as low as possible. But we do need some support to facilitate donations and maintain app functionality.

We’re an app. We don’t need as much behind-the-scenes work as larger charities – The aim of Halo is to help make charities lives simpler and easier via the use of our Mobile technology helping to transact those smaller targeted donations which may not have been possible previously without the Halo App and its infrastructure.
