I did not know this, my wife didn't, and others do not
OK guys, don't pick on me about this, I never heard about this before so why would I have a reason to think about it, and as I said my wife didn't know ether, and a few others I talked to today didn't know this ether..

so,, I assumed that Charity is Charity,, I did not know that Charity Fund Raisers keep some of the money they raise for Charity,, as I type this I'm thinking that I should have known that cause nothing is free,,

well I'm just wonder who are these people, and are they rich, and how much of a percentage do they get to keep

so my wife and I have given charity money before,, but today when a lady called she told me who to contact to find out how much money the Fund Raiser gets to keep,,

wow, I have to say it blew my mind to learn this in such a way,,
and this lady is a volunteer that works for free, the first thing i thought was "she works for free while the Fund Raiser gets money",

as for me> if I give charity money I want All the money to go to charity, not just some of it, and I sure don't want some of it to go to some one rich,,,if that's the case, the rich are rich, they don't need charity..

I just think it's a cheesy way to get money>>>> hey, give me money and I will give some of it to charity and I will keep the rest,,, <<it doesn't sound good to me,,

and the people I talked to today feel the same way as I do

so I told the lady I will never give money to a Fund Raiser again, said I will walk down to the hospital and give them money for their Pediatric Cancer Center so I know they will get all the money I give

Jim, they just exposed 4 "breast cancer" charities...owned by the same guy(believe in Tenn.)...that < 10% of funds donated went to fund BC research...while the > 90% went to fund their family's lavish lifestyle.

Was on the evening news recently.

You have to research how much of the funds go to fund the operation of the fundraisers.

There are sites online that you can determine who the scammers are.

The Salvation Army has one of the best ratio of % funds used for the purpose vs. funds used to "finance" the orgs. operation expenses.

Depending on who owns the charity and how much of a salary they set for themselves and their board members. Some are voluntary and work the charity for no pay.

But, cost of doing business is still charged against the charities funds. Some fund owners live very well traveling first class and rooming in very expensive living conditions. Depends on the clientele.

Take the Clinton Foundation and you have very highly paid fund owners set up in very expensive surroundings, traveling in private jets and rooming at only the most expensive accommodations. The last I heard, only about 18% of the charities funds actually goes to the poor it claims to be helping. Of course, its said that political influence spending on a scale never seen in human history is going on there.

One other thing about charitable foundations and taxes. In a foundation owner draws a salary, that salary is taxed as earned income. Only the foundation itself is not taxed like a business or a corporation.

It's not too hard to figure out which charities are worth giving to. Because of their tax filing status, they are usually pretty transparent. The only hard part is that you have to actually ask the question.

Here is a sampler:
http://www.forbes.com/lists/2011/14...es-11_rank.html

Be sure and click on a charity. As an example, click on the "American Cancer Society" Notice the highest paid individual. In this case they make about 2.4 million. Also notice the gross revenue and the amount spent on "Management" and "Fund Raising". In the case of the ACS, these total about 25% of the total revenue or 1/4 of a billion dollars.

Personally, my largest charity is the Federal government. After paying about $45,000 in federal taxes last year, and most most of it seemingly going to "the poor" or jobs programs, I no longer give to charity. We now have forced tithing via the Federal Government.

I never understood the process really, not even the Red cross. But I know some of these guy get bust taking the money for personal use.
if you look at Burnie Madof, and scook brother, their money was donate
to do good but it turn to evil, Madoff was an investment that the devident is to go to charity's that never happen.

The truth is all have theirs in the cookie jars.

Angelina jolie stop acting you know why? The good will UN ambassador network is a bigger pay check.

She : JOE

Is most likely the responsible sponsor for your H1-B Virus, so you should get the tassels checked on your Lieder-Hozen. Expect she paid for your education and transportation.

Make a appt. with Dr. Stink Finger for the Nail Fungus, and tell him you have FOB /COD - Collect with a Blue Barrel for warranty.
Tell the good Doctor you know the Skook Brother's on I- 80.

Tell them you can pass the test.

Better Mention you also have CRBD

Burnie Madof,........., their money was donate
to do good
With regards to Bernie Madoff, the money he made was NEVER for good.

It was a "pyramid" ripoff investment scheme from the very beginning.

He had to convince other investors to invest to pay the ROIs of previous investors.

The initial investors were promised ROIs of 100%....and that just don't happen....the last investors were the suckers.

His son was also involved and later on hanged himself.

Don't know how you come up with your assertions.
