Charity Downfalls

Introduction:Charity Navigator publishes a yearly list of the charities to avoid. They have the list of the worst charities to donate to and by far the most investigative information to help people make correct decisions about their money. So, what are the problems with charities? Read and find out what the top five are.

  • 01

    CEO Salaries

    Company executive officers of some charities think they should be paid astronomical salaries. The top performers are not always the most richly rewarded. The stature of the man or woman, the physical appearance and the willingness to be interviewed are pin pointed in many organizations to be the more well paid. If the CEO knows someone in the high places of the charity, they can skate to the high levels without knowing much or even caring about the charitable duties too. The travel expenses to promote the charities need reimbursement, so the CEO gets a sum of money to allow that too. This is more intricately described in the next step of the CEO or some of the top paid people in charity organizations.

  • 02

    Travel Expense Accounts

    When the figure heads of important charities want more donations, they have to be seen by the public. They are like presidential candidates that go around kissing babies to get elected. Some of the highest paid CEO's in America are Hollywood's friends. They socialize and rub elbows to get the donations as they party and travel where the elite go too. The people who donate their hard earned wages pay through their donations so in actuality their donations don't go to the cause they thought, but to the fluff and flair of the CEO and who ever else needs to be seen. Traveling in style has to be reported, so the CEO stands out to be good enough for the celeb's social events. Money spent on lavish hotels and private jets can rob a company of the REAL cause of the charity and they purpose of the CEO.

  • 03

    Benefit Packages of Top People In Organizations

    We all know the price of good health care. The CEO or top people in most charities will quickly tell you they have some of the best benefit packages they ever knew existed. As the premiums rise so do the benefit package gifts to some of the charity's top people rise too. In order to keep current, some charities go above and beyond common sense or the other factors. One factor that can easily pull funds from a charity is little or no co pay from the employee. How would you sustain the top man or woman if they had some out of pocket funds to contribute to their dental, eye coverage and that of their families too? These expenses can really rob the company donations and the real purpose behind those donations.

    Centers of Charities

    It is not good enough to say the American Cancer Society has bases or finger charity centers in every city or at least state unless they are easily found by anyone wishing to donate money to the seemingly worthwhile and long standing organization. Lately the investigative reporters discovered some three digit figures for people in podunk towns across America who actually were not able to answer some solid questions. The questions were: "How does your organization help people with cancer?" Another difficult question was asked: "What part of a donation actually gets to the cancer suffering patients?" Take a look at an 11 year old in this video who exposes a huge company. http://www.educateinspirechange.org/2013/07/kid-destroys-monsanto-in-ted-talk.htm

    Showmanship of Charities

    Have you ever wondered how the Hollywood stars stay on the top of their venue? Could it be that they get manicures, pedicures, hair stylists to prepare them for their public and more. The more is: the places they go to eat so common people can have their heads turned when they notice the celebrity. Important charity people drop names, attend specific fund raiser for other companies so they can get exposure too. The limo they arrive in make a statement, but also cost the company money. The rented tux or the gown might be almost as costly as if it were bought so the people's showmanship is intact for everyone to marvel at when the CEO of the charity is in attendance of any event.




Final Thoughts

Look to know where your money is going when you donate. Trust an organization like Charity Navigator to guide you to the REAL charities. They will also tell you the ones to steer clear of too. They are not paid by the charities, so you know they tell the truth without bias.
