Have you ever been curious about how 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!
