My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Charlottes Wings, Rochester, MI, USA
First and foremost in selecting a charity to donate time and money to, I check the ratio of admin to cause dollars. CW meets this at about 95% of every dollar goes directly to purchasing books. This is outstanding! Having no paid employees allows them to achieve this, and the minimal admin costs come from routine items 501(c)(3)s must adhere to.
Secondly, how far does the organization reach in fulfilling their mission? CW touches every corner of the state of Michigan and supports children from eating disorders to hospice patients. I love the diversity!
They also do recreation reading options for all levels.
I had the honor of participating in a book delivery to an oncology floor. I watched children put down their "devices" in favor of a book. Books are not lost! We tend to go with the easily accessible option -- and Charlotte's Wings makes books that easily accessible option for children and their families!!
Thank you to the many volunteers that make this organization go round! You prove each md every day that you don't have to be the biggest to be doing some of the best!!!
