Been a donor for the past three years. This time for the first time, I actually looked into the organization to see where my $25 went to. They told me that it went to the 300 patients that needed financial support to continue with their cancer therapy. I downloaded their Form 990, which is their tax return, and found out in 2012 that they had 670k worth of donations, and 470k (70%) went to fundraising costs (???), and 140k went to "other" expenses (21%), and salaries were 40k (6%) leaving only $17,666 of excess donations. Not an accountant, but this organization looks like it runs for the benefit of the fundraisers, (Ronald F. Doddy & Associates, of Essexville, Michigan ($469,797). Disappointing, won't contribute ever again.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Demonstrate that 80% of all donations actually went to patients and cancer research, not only 3%.
