NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS MEMORIAL FUND INC

The previous reviewer is confused. The 61% Program Costs is what they work with. However, the Red Flag with this charity is the Fundraising Costs of 32%. Anything over 15-20% is unreasonable and indicates waste. Another problem is Donor Privacy; they are yellow/amber on this, which means they sell/give your information to other organizations/businesses. But the biggest Red Flag is a lack of independent audits on their financials. This is expected of all well-run, highly-rated charities.

ADOPT A PLATOON

Have been giving to this charity for about 6 months. Just reviewed their financials on Charity Navigator. The director's salary is reasonable, for a business, but not for a charity. This should be all-volunteer work, and all possible funds used for program costs of assembling and shipping packages to our service men and women. Another thing "wrong" with their financials is Fundraising Costs of over 45%. Red Flag here. Anything over 15-20% for fundraising is out of line. Also low scores for transparency and independent reviews/audits for their financials are Red Flags. DO NOT get caught up in emotions on this. It's a good cause; just a poorly run organization. There are plenty of good military related charities out there who spend 70-80% of all contributions for the service members. Would not recommend this charity. Give to Fischer House instead.
