Formed in Portland, Oregon on June 1994, VOSA is operated by a group of non-salaried and non-reimbursed volunteers. All the travel expenses to/in Vietnam have been paid for by the out-of-pocket money of VOSA's officers. To obtain charity funds, VOSA has called upon friends and donors, as well as doing fund-raising activities like fund-raising dinner and raffle. Most of the contributions have been used to provide support directly to orphans, the poor people and needy students in Vietnam. Only about 3% of revenues is reserved for necessary expenses, such as postage, photocopies, office supplies, license fees.
