When it comes to donating money to charity, is there any way to find out exactly how much of your donation is going directly to where it is needed most or if your donation is being used for administrative costs for the charity itself or for other expenses?
I’m quite selective in which organizations that I give money to and every now and then, I wonder just how much of people’s donations actually go toward the cause itself or if there might be mismanagement of the donated monies. I know I might sound cynical in asking this question but I sincerely do wonder about charities and how they distribute their funds.
