Overseas Aid could become voluntary in Guernsey, if a move by two politicians gets support at the end of the month.
Currently the £2,960,000 Overseas Aid Commission budget comes from general taxation.
Deputy Lester Queripel is asking for Policy and Resources to undertake a review into whether the budget for the Overseas Aid Commission should come from voluntary donations.
Money from Guernsey's Overseas Aid Commission has recently been used to support humanitarian work in crisis hit Yemen and the East Africa famine.
The move has already provoked condemnation from members of Guernsey's States and the island's charitable community.
