Review for Disabled Veterans National Foundation, Lanham, MD, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I received today a large package from this foundation. I do not want to open it and will return it, because I do not believe this is the way to make money for services.
By looking at the financials of this foundation, it turns out that only 64% of a contribution goes to services for the veterans. While I have seen even worse performances of Veterans & Military charities (Intrepid Fallen Heroes...: 20%!!!!; Home for Our Troops: 33%!!!!), it bear to say that all the charities I support are easily over 90%.
Why these horrible performances from these charities???
The only one that I support (and just reaches 90%) is the US Veterans Initiative (aka U.S. VETS).

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

No experience at all.

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

Look at the reason for the disproportion between the money used for administration and that which directly benefits the veterans.
