Behind the Scenes
We show this information to be transparent but also for those who might be interested
in some of the things that go on behind the scenes in managing the charity.
Many of AMF's systems are automated. This means many activities are handled very
efficiently requiring only a few minutes of oversight each month. Importantly, it
also means we are able to do things we would otherwise not be able to do because
they now require minimal resources.
We have a fully integrated system for donation management, donation allocation
and distribution management. This integration is necessary for us to allocate donations
to distributions so you can see where the nets you fund are distributed.
It is important all non-US$ donations are converted to and 'locked' in US$ so
we know how many US$ we have to buy nets. This underpins our ability to allocate
donations to distributions.
We have designed a bespoke highly automated system so we can keep you informed
about net use. The system is able to manage the entry, review and making public
large quantities of data and other information. We are working with partners to
extend this further as technology advances.
We personally write to all donors who donate more than US$200 or who make a
recurring donation, and to all schools and young donors where they can be identified.
An automated system for managing Gift Aid is important for efficiency but it
also allows us to follow-up with offline donors which we might not otherwise be
able to do.
We review every donation AMF receives which helps us to manage allocation, communication
