Review for Water for People, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I saw a negative comment on here of 1 star and I wanted to make a statement to clarify that they are actually a LEAN organization and nowhere near a 1-star status. My cousin works for Water For People and she talks so highly of the organization that when I was looking to donate to a worthwhile organization I started doing my research on them, and I can say it, they are a GREAT transparent and accountable organization. They have never gone over 19% of overhead (Management and fundraising expenses). In fact, in reviewing the 990 from 2009 (which the 1-star comment refers too) they actually only spent 17% on overhead expenses. Even more, Water For People’s comment states they actually had 150 employees in 2009, I would say that many employees getting paid out of $3million alongside other management and fundraising costs… and with the impact they had in 2009 and continue to have in the places where they work…. Um, I would say THAT IS A HIGHLY EFFECTIVE ORGANIZATION and a FIVE-STAR status.
