NCA works to ensure high programme quality. A rights-based approach, gender justice, and conflict sensitivity are among the commitments that inform our programming.
Every year, NCA arranges large-scale fundraising campaigns during Lent in the lead up to Easter and during the Christmas season. In these campaigns, NCA receives a great amount of support and help from our supporters, which includes a unique network of churches and congregations across the country. The non-earmarked funds that are raised are crucial in allowing NCA to carry out its important mandate: To save lives and seek justice.
Securing a stable and diverse income base is important for NCA to achieve impact in our work with partners and rights-holders around the world. Despite an ambition to prioritise efforts for diversification, due to several factors, NCA’s total turnover in 2018 was approximately NOK 928 million (USD 115 million), a slight decrease compared to 2017 figures. This was a mainly due to a 7% reduction in funding from private donors and a 3.5% decrease in international institutional funding grants, although there was a slight (1%) increase in support from Norwegian Government funding channels.
