My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American National Red Cross, Washington, DC, USA
I've donated in the past but will no more after reviewing their tax forms. Most of the relief they provide goes overseas. With all the disasters in the U.S. I'm sure we needed more than what they provided in the states. Don't get me started on the salaries. I realize to get the best people to run the organization they demand high salaries but almost a million a year is ridiculous. I think anything over 200,000 a year is excessive. I'm searching for another organization to keep my money in this country. How many countries are providing help to the U.S.?
An employee of the ARC commented on my review. Read "comments" below my original review. She should review the form 990 because she is either misinformed or outright lying about the amount of relief provided overseas 183,894,000 vs US relief 67,110,753 published in part IX lines 2&3. Also, part VII shows the CEO salary and other compensation at over 1 million not 500k as she stated. Key employees salaries were reported as74.7 mil. read it yourself.She should also read some of the other personal experiences of former volunteers and recipients of "relief". They may provide a lot of help to disaster victims but imagine how much more they could do. Way too much waste and administrative costs.
