Pathfinder has a long tradition of smart and effective financial stewardship. In fiscal year 2018, 90 cents of every dollar went directly to services in some of the world’s poorest countries.
Our financial accountability is just one of the reasons Pathfinder has been listed and approved by several independent organizations that evaluate charities’ fiscal and programmatic performance.

We require our employees to conduct themselves with integrity and in an ethical manner. Similarly, all partners and subcontractors are expected to promote lawful and ethical conduct.
In situations where the person is not comfortable approaching their supervisor or management, he or she is encouraged to use the Pathfinder confidential and anonymous hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint.
The information provided via the hotline will be sent by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis.
