PETA is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation funded almost exclusively by the contributions of our members. We strive to use our funds in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible, a commitment illustrated by the fact that 84.04 percent of our operating expenses went directly to our programs fighting animal exploitation. We expended only 14.79 percent on fundraising efforts that drive our operations and 1.17 percent on management and general operations.
