Review for March of Dimes Foundation, White Plains, NY, USA
March of Dimes is an easily recognizable name as far as charities go. What is disconcerting is the proportion of funds MOD spends on fundraising. I just got an appeal with a dime in it. To me this is just throwing money away.
What made me check further into March of Dimes fundraising is that there is a small insert with very hard to read "fine print". A pie chart is shown on this insert showing where MOD claims your dollar goes. MOD claims 75.8% goes to programs. After checking with Charity Navigator, I see the percentage is even lower at 65.9%. This undermines my faith in MOD and has made me scratch them off my list of organizations I will contribute to.
