This month, Charity Navigator is celebrating its birthday! Our service has helped millions of donors, like you, give smarter by providing you with the charity evaluations, giving tips, and other tools you need to make intelligent giving decisions. If we’ve helped you identify charities to trust and support, then please join us in celebrating by giving a gift to Charity Navigator today.
Excellent charities succeed because their resources are not tied up in fundraising. They find creative ways to spend less to raise more, thereby maximizing the resources they can devote to their programs. These 10 charities are not so fortunate or efficient. They spend more than $0.50 to raise each dollar in support, making them four times less efficient than the average charity. This inefficiency forces them to devote more than 40% of their budgets to fundraising, limiting the difference they can make with your dollars.
