Most charities derive large chunks of revenue from earned income, membership fees, and government contracts and grants. Ranked by overall score, these 10 excellent charities draw revenue solely from direct and indirect public support. They report no government funding, no membership fees, and no revenue from earned income. As a result, more than 95% of their total revenue comes from private contributions, which makes the efficiency of their fundraising operations all the more impressive.
