Review for AmeriCares Foundation, Inc., Stamford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We love AmeriCares and everything they do, and have been giving generously for serveral years. We feel that we can trust that our dollars are actually going into programs and support, and they seem very receptive to input from contributors. I am upset to see people using this forum to slam a charity for being persistent in their fund raising -- and without knowing anything about their programs or operations. Annoying as solicitations can be, it still seems petty. Likewise, it seems clear that financial ratings system unfairly penalizes smaller charities like this one that are not raking in cash hand over fist since the recession. AmeriCares is as good as it gets when it comes to low administrative costs and efficiency. They are one of the few American charities actually representing American values in a positive, unapologetic way.
