Official Charity Response

The Humane Society of Charlotte is incurring higher than normal costs associated with fundraising because we are actively engaged in a capital campaign to build a new animal resource center. These additional fundraising costs for the campaign are restricted for the capital building project and are not part of our normal operating costs.  Since the rating system does not differentiate between restricted and non-restricted giving, the Humane Society of Charlotte is showing a higher than normal expense ratio that is causing a lower rating on Charity Navigator. For any questions regarding our operations or fundraising, please contact us at donate@humanecharlotte.org.
