On September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the United States of America killing and injuring thousands. Horrified and compassionate Americans across the country subsequently donated $2.2 billion to various charities that had quickly set up 9/11-related funds. Under pressure from the media, politicians and donors, the majority of this money was spent within a year of the attacks. However, some charities wisely withheld a portion of the money they raised so that they could continue to fund memorial projects, mental and health-care services, and scholarships into the future.
So, just how are those charities that established 9/11 funds performing today?
