DISABLED VETERANS NATIONAL FOUNDATION
May 9, 2011

I received today a large package from this foundation. I do not want to open it and will return it, because I do not believe this is the way to make money for services.
By looking at the financials of this foundation, it turns out that only 64% of a contribution goes to services for the veterans. While I have seen even worse performances of Veterans & Military charities (Intrepid Fallen Heroes...: 20%!!!!; Home for Our Troops: 33%!!!!), it bear to say that all the charities I support are easily over 90%.
Why these horrible performances from these charities???
The only one that I support (and just reaches 90%) is the US Veterans Initiative (aka U.S. VETS).

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

Look at the reason for the disproportion between the money used for administration and that which directly benefits the veterans.
