    I didn't see The Human Fund on there. I have been donating money to them for years.

    There's been a big debate within the non-prof community whether they truly are non-prof given, it seems to me, how the only thing that makes them non-prof are a few forms and lack of shareholders.

    "Watchdog groups say no more than 35 percent of donations should go to fundraising costs. There is no standard for how much should be be spent on direct cash aid."
    how much does NSAL spend on fundraisers?

    More fake shit people give money too. Always a scam when people or charities want money. Most of it going to new homes, cars, etc for the top people running it. This article should be posted everywhere.

    Interested is a GOOD "charity"?

    Rotary International passes 100% of donated money through to end recipients and programs. They pay for administration through rotating investment of donated funds.
    Rotary, one of the worlds largest charitable organization is responsible for the near eradication of polio world-wide.

    So true. Too bad Rotary did not run the government.

    how about if you use more than 30% for yourself/costs, you arent a non-profit.
    if you'r goina scam for profit, at least pay tax on it

    It really is hard to give to charity. You almost always later realize they waste much of it. If you doubt it send $20 to someone and watch them spend $50 over the next few years mailing you shit. I try to keep it local and small and look for ones that have good reputations. I also concentrate on donations to people who didn't fuck up, but had bad luck. (the blind, children, animals, etc). BTW, feeding starving people overseas has been shown to perpetuate the problem, not help.

    That's fine. I would however disagree with WHY they're members. Most are in it for the business contacts. Doubt it? Try to be a banker w/o your boss telling you to join.

    They should not be allowed to call themselves a charity if they don't give 50% back to the needy.

    In which case NSAL would be out of business.

    I would assume that "not turning a profit" would have to be a requirement! I'm sure many are just funneling money to the "owners" via salaries and such. I know the big food assistance charity was found to be using their family trucking business to haul the donated food at exhorbitant rates, thus using the charity for profit indirectly.
