See "Charity Network Inflates Efficiency and Reduces Accountability" at Charity Watch website. This charity uses very questionable accounting and funding transactions to appear to be reasonably efficient. It is part of 'charity network' which pass donations between themselves, thereby double-, or more - counting as program expenses. Nice racket though reprehensible. If you want to pay for travel and entertainment for charity employees, this could be the charity for you. (Yet another instance of misanthropic antics of yet another televangelist, in this case Don Stewart.)
I am an employee for the Children's Cancer Research Fund in Minnesota. I looked up the Charity Watch article that Rudi refers to to investigate what was said. The article lists 22 charities affiliated with Don Stewart Association (DSA), with #9 being listed as "Children's Cancer Aid and Research Institute (aka Children's Cancer Research Fund)" This is a completely erroneous statement. Children's Cancer Research Fund in MN has never been affiliated with either DSA or Children's Cancer Aid and Research Institute, both of which are based in Arizona. Please investigate the charities you support by looking up their IRS 990 tax form. You can view them for free by visiting a charity's website or www.Guidestar.org - this is a much more reliable way to learn about a charity's credability than reading 3rd party reviews online. The article on Charity Watch is incorrect. It is also from The Arizona Republic, written in 2009. Outdated information, incorrect facts. Please review the IRS 990s for charities on your own.
