    Uhh...

    Did you even look to see what the term 'program expenses' means?

    [QUOTE]Program Expenses: This measure reflects what percent of its total budget a charity spends on the programs and services it exists to deliver. Dividing a charity's program expenses by its total functional expenses yields this percentage. [/QUOTE]

    I know what program expenses mean, thank you very much. My point stands, you can donate to a charity that spends 95%+ of donations to programs expenses.

    Bound, you can't trash the Red Cross for dedicating 9% of funds towards Capex/Marketing/Human Cap/etc...........They are the premier organization in their field. You have to account a greater yield towards marketing/advertising alone.

    i don't really trust the red cross after 9/11. They had to practically be sued to release Liberty Funds to victim's families.

    I'm not trashing them. I'm just informing people of BETTER options that use MORE of your donations to what really matters.
