SAVE THE FROGS! Revenues: 2008-2015

SAVE THE FROGS! accomplishes an incredible amount on a very small budget: on average our annual revenues are less than one thousandth of what The Big Guys bring in each year. While it is fabulous that SAVE THE FROGS! accomplishes so much with every dollar we raise, we are limited by our total revenues, which from 2008-2015 averaged only $118,847 per year.

Dollar For Dollar, Save The Frogs Blows The Big Guys Away

Have you ever been curious about the charities you support spend your donations? Would you like to ensure your donations get used for the greatest good? If you are like most donors, the answers are YES and YES!

I chose five of the largest and most well-known environmental charities (we will refer to them as The Big Guys) and I compiled their relevant financial data to compare it to that of SAVE THE FROGS!. My goal was to determine how SAVE THE FROGS! is doing in regards to wise use of donor funds. The five charities I chose all have annual revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and all five have average revenues over 1,000 times greater than does SAVE THE FROGS!, so it is safe to assume these charities collect a significant proportion of the world's environmental donations.

Meet The Big Guys:

  • World Wildlife Fund
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • Greenpeace International
  • Conservation International
  • Natural Resources Defense Council

The Big Guys all do fabulous things for the environment; this article is only intended to examine how their supporters' donations are spent. Read on to find out what I found out!

Testimonials

"Hello, I have been interested in frogs for the last 20 years. They are (a) wonderful animals on their own right, with wonderful behaviors and anatomical specifications; (b) a wonderful tool for education about the importance of ecosystem health to species health and (c) just beautiful. They get kids excited about animals, nature, and science."
