DEC is a joint appeal on behalf of a number of charities, usually in response to a major disaster in the world.Fundraising costs in 2014 were £3.3 million, from £3 million the previous year. The biggest fundraising cost was for public appeals and events at £1.6 million while committed giving cost £1.3 million, up from a £1 million in 2013.
