Have you ever donated to a cause in good faith and thought to ask what percentage (%) of your dollar goes towards the actual cause?
If an organization has contacted you, asking you to donate your hard-earned money, ASK! Take time to seek information before donating to a charity or cause to help in your decision making process.
- Ask! What percentage of the contribution will actually be spent on the charitable purpose of the organization? (In some instances, less than 20% of the money collected will be applied to the charitable cause.)
- Who is making the request? A charity or a 3rd party commercial fundraiser? Ask! Do you work for the organization or an outsourcing company?
- Ask! How will my donation be used?
At Refuge of Hope 81% of all donations goes to client services!
- 81% to Client Services
- 8% to Administration
- 11% to Development
An organization should be more than willing to take the time to answer your questions. Research before you give.
Make your mark on our world with a charitable donation to a cause that stirs passion in your heart.
