What percent of each contribution to the Jackson Memorial Foundation (Miami) is held back for marketing & administrative expenses? When I raised over $50,000 for JMF some years ago, 30% was held back and not passed along to the charitable recipient, in that case, the Miami Transplant Institute to endow a Chair in the name of world-renown transplant surgeon Andreas Tzakis (now with Cleveland Clinic in Weston). Hopefully, through better management,they have reduced the 30%, which was outrageous, to something substantially less and more in line with well accepted charity guidelines.

However, the current interim President, who was an executive member of the former CEO's team,, has said nothing about severance payments or other income awarded to the last CEO, money that would come right out of donations, nor has she or the governing board made statements about reducing administrative and marketing costs, which in the past have eaten up some 30% of every dollar contributed. You would do better contributing directly to one of the services provided by the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, such as the Miami Transplant Institute.
