I just received a call from a man who identified himself as a professional donation solicitor for AHA. I asked him the % of each donation that is used for solicitation to which he answered 21%. I told him that I do not donate to nonprofits that use that high of a percentage and ended the call. I looked up the % on http://www.charitynavigator.org and noted that he lied by stating about 1/2 of the amount (38.5% currently). I would not recommend a donation to American Heart Association.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
