A List Of Who Has The Best Donation To Help Ratio For Charitable Organizations


I found this list on-line and thought that since it "Tis the season" for contributions that this might help others make intellegent decisions before opening pocket books and hearts. It sure opened my eyes about the money flow of contributions.

The American Red Cross

President and CEO Marsha J. Evans'
salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses
MARCH OF DIMES

It is called the March of Dimes because
only a dime for every 1 dollar is given to the needy.
The United Way

President Brian Gallagher
receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.
UNICEF

CEO Caryl M. Stern
receives
$1,200,000 per year (100k per month) plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE.

Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause.
GOODWILL 

CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year.

Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business. You donate to his business and then he sells the items for PROFIT. He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice Guy.
$0.00 goes to help anyone!




Instead, please consider donating to any of the list below where all the donations will be put to good works.

I will never forgot the kindness of the Ronald McDonald house..when Liam was in the hosp.for his heart surgery, they gave a us place to sleep for only $4, right next to the hosp! I will never give to the 4 first listed. Although, in fairness, during Hurricane Katrina and other devasting weather related issues, the Red Cross helped us & many people in need.Thanks Sparky
