My3cents Discussion Discussion - Charity Money Appropriations

Review by my3cents on 2001-10-29
Are you at all concerned about how the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars being donated to various charities since the Sept. 11th tragedy are being appropriated?

I for one hope that the money is being used more efficiently than some charitable counter-parts like United Way, etc. A few years back I used to give to the United Way regularly until I found out that they waste 20% of donations on administrative costs, which is just ridiculous.

People should not be worried about who is getting what. The people who need the donations the most do not have time for beauracracy, they need help now!
