Financial Integrity

A Trustworthy Organization

At the Grant Cardone Foundation, stewardship and transparency is an integral part of everything we do — because we recognize that every resource entrusted to us can help transform lives and communities.

As part of our stewardship, we optimize resources and distribute them where they are needed most. We carefully monitor and review programs costs and effectiveness, use donations and grants for their intended purposes, and look for ways to collaborate and leverage funds for maximum impact.

In addition, we continually strive to keep our overhead rate low. Annually, 100 percent of our total operating expenses are used for direct services and programs that benefit our at-risk youth globally by providing optimum financial mindset and literacy tools, helping break the poverty cycle.

Our effectiveness has earned the trust and support of hundreds of donors, corporations, institutions, and government agencies.

The Grant Cardone Foundation is a Florida not-for-profit corporation and is registered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax deductible.

Guidestar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations, has awarded us the Platinum seal of transparency.  While many organizations function at an operational rate of around 20% of funds raised, we are extremely proud to share that our operational rate is at 9%.  This translates to more funding directly to our programs and services.
