MFO Financial Information
The flexibility and independence of the unique MFO management structure, and its conscious political insulation, are three reasons for its success.
They have permitted cost-effective innovation with a minimum of intrusion by extraneous political agendas and the bureaucracy that hamper effectiveness and change. Constructive trilateral review of the MFO has proven to be a persistent characteristic quality, along with a history of firm MFO fiscal management rewarded by consistent, responsive and cooperative support from our three Funds-Contributing States - Egypt, Israel and the United States - and from Donor States.
The three Funds-Contributing States each contribute one third of the MFO's annual budget, less donations and any other external contributions which may be received. The directly interested Parties, Egypt and Israel, fund most of the costs of the MFO. Current Donor States are Finland, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
In MFO FY2018, Donor States contributed approx. 5.2% of the MFO's operating revenue. In addition, Australia, Japan, and the United States provided funding for Force Protection purposes.
