KidneyStone: Very little goes to actual wounded warriors
KidneyStone: If only that were true.
KidneyStone: If you ever looked at WW's financials you'd never donate a dime to them. Very little goes to actual wounded warriors.

tripleseven: I thought his had been debunked ad nauseam here.
KidneyStone: HeadLever: KidneyStone: Very little goes to actual wounded warriorsAlmost 60% of their budget, compared to 5.6% in administrative costs (according to Charity Navigator) That does not seem too bad on this size of organization.If only that were true.http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/12/08/wounded-warriors-project-a-l eg al-scam/I did note the pie chart percentages which you mention (Administrative Expense: 4.4%, Fundraising Exp.: 12.8%). Based on the WWP Form 990, these figures are misleading. Total 2011 revenues were $154.9 MM with total fundraising expenses of $20.5MM and total administrative expenses, including outsourced services, of $95.5MM. Note that the total administrative expense includes fund raising. Therefore, as a percentage of total revenue, administrative expenses amount to 61.63%, including fundraising expenses of 13.2%. This equates to 38.36% of revenues available to benefit wounded warriors.You can donate to the American Legion's Comfort Warrior Project where 100% goes to wounded troops. All of it. Every single penny.http://www.legion.org/troops/operationcomfort
