Review for March of Dimes Foundation, White Plains, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

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.
