Review for Nature Conservancy, Inc., Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

My wife and I are life members of TNC, and are in the process of preparing a new will. We plan to leave much of our estate to charities, but only to charities that are managed efficiently.
TNC used to be among the top charities when it came to the percent of donors' moneys spent on programs. I am disappointed that it now gets only three stars on Charity Navigator, and that it spent $182 million on administrative and fundraising expenses during the latest period.
Has TNC been hijacked by leaders/managers whose priorities are no longer "nature conservancy?"

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Nature Conservancy preserve in Mount Desert Island, Maine.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reduce the admin and fundraising expenses; spend more of the donors' money on "nature conservancy rather than such expenses.
