Charities, like most professional organizations, have overhead costs. It’s unrealistic to expect that 100% of all the money raised by a particular charity will be spent on its program mandate. Someone needs to pay to keep the lights on. Then there are marketing, travel, resource and talent costs to consider. Nonetheless, some charities are better than others at maximizing every donor dollar.

Do you consider how much your preferred charity spends on the actual program it promotes? Tell us where you draw the line by answering our poll question below.
