One of the biggest problems in the non-profit industry is the lack of transparency. The overhead and operational cost for the big non-profits exceeds what most "for-profit' companies today face. As a volunteer-run organization, all proceeds go directly to the projects and/or children. Simply put, they deliver results. I was hesitant to donate money to other charities, primarily because you never know how far your dollar is going. For every dollar you donate, seventy cents probably goes towards operational costs. Givology aims to provide short-term impact to children and projects in need. When you donate to Givology's projects, you can be certain that every dollar is being put into the pockets of children in need.
