How can this charity be 3-star rated by CharityNavigator and 4-star rated by Guidestar reviewers when they dedicate less than 1/2 of revenues (44.3%) to "programs" and OVER half (51.6%) of revenues to FUNDRAISING? It seems that the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (81% of revenues to programs) is a much better "charitable investment".
