Dear Neighbour, I have noticed the recent spate of TV adverts for charities requesting between £2 and £5 per month for a vast variety of causes. I decided to do some research into charities and see where the donations actually end up. My findings were, in some cases, quite alarming. Whilst there are some charities who ‘own’ their fund raising departments, many use outside agencies to collect on their behalf for a commission. This is a 10 billion pound per year industry. A vast sum of money. Charity shops come under a different set of rules from businesses and many only pass on as little as 19% of the money handed over and may get 80% relief on council tax. On average external collection agencies take between 25% and 30% of donations. But in some cases I found it to be as much as 35% and in one case a staggering 95%. Many of them were quite open to me when I asked for financial details although I found the “Save the Children” charity to be very obstructive, they flatly refused to discuss their commission rate and terminated my telephone call. I found this quite worrying. The next time you are feeling charitable to a worthy cause, which I hasten to add they all are, don’t be put off asking where the donation ‘actually’ goes to as in some cases I found that a donation to a certain charity may be funding a contribution to an entirely different charity who they are in association with. It is fair to say however that out of the 10 billion pounds generously given to charities by the British public at least 3 billion pounds never finds its way to the charities to which it is donated. Stay safe everyone.
