    out of every $100 donation immediately is taken right off the top to pay for fund-raising and administrative related expenses. Only 61.3% of your donation is actually applied to what Charity Navigator describes as "Program Expenses (Percent of the charity’s budget spent on the programs and services it delivers)

    So if the Beth Vanity Kitty Extension donation goal is $7million, then deducting the 38.7% that comes off the top for non "program" expenses including exorbitant executive salaries, lavish self-congratulatory banquets, clueless spokespersons and general fund raising and pandering, the actual construction cost for this boondoggle is approximately $4.3million. And then of course being a registered charity, they sidestep taxes on this windfall also. It's a racket worthy of the Illuminati!

    So extrapolating the approx $1 Beth is alleged to receive from the publisher on every $12+ "Yoda The Persian Grifter," book, approximately 61cents actually is applied towards the construction costs. But wait a second! Whose pot does the actual author's and illustrator's payments come out of? What a fucking farce!

    This is really a key piece of info, there are other charities with the same purpose and operating in the same environment that use over 90% of donations for animal services. PawsChicago is one example, the last time I looked they were around 92%.

    I see so many post about how much the main execs make at NSAL, but actually the are very much on the low end % wise
    Administrative Expenses 3.7%

    The biggest red flag is ...
    Fundraising Expenses 34.8%

    Over 1/3 goes to that.
    THAT is where the focus should be as far as finger pointing.

    Now the argument is that feel they need to spend to make, but holy shit is that too much

    case in point even closer to home:

    Humane Society of NY (gets 4 stars vs NSAL's 2)
    Program Expenses (donations actually being applied to charity's focus) 90.8% vs NSAL 61.3%.
