VAB maintains low overhead expenses due to the diligent work of its volunteers. Approximately 10% of funds collected over the past three years have been used for fundraising costs and operational costs such as office maintenance, office supplies and paid personnel in Dhaka.

VAB’s operations are open to inspection by donors and others. It submits annual audited reports to the Internal Revenue Service and to the Department of Finance of the Government of the State of New York.
