Spending Cost to Direct Public Joint

America’s Top Charities
How to Read Consumers Digest’s Chart: For our chart, Consumers Digest focused on more
than 2,400 top charities as defined by size and reputation among independent analysts. We
whittled the list to charities that were recognized most frequently by those analysts. We asked
each of the charities that are listed below to provide an Internal Revenue Service Form 990
for the latest tax year or, in the case of national organizations that have local affiliates that file
their own tax documents, independently audited financial reports. Thus, the numbers that we
used to evaluate the charities are those that were submitted by the charities to IRS or Consumers Digest. The chart is divided by general goals (health, human services, religious, etc.)
and then sorted by Spending Efficiency, which is the percentage of how much that a charity
spends on its mission compared with its total expenses. (On Part IX of the Form 990, divide
Line 25B by Line 25A and multiply by 100.) We excluded charities that didn’t distribute at
least 65 percent of their total funds to their programs.
* Cost to Raise $100. We compared a charity’s spending on fundraising with the amount
that its fundraising efforts brought in. (Divide Line 25D on Part IX of the 990 by the sum of Part
VIII, Line 1b, 1c and 1f, and multiply by 100.) We excluded charities that spent more than 35
percent, or $35 per $100 raised, of their contributions on fundraising.
* Direct Public Support. This column is the amount that was received directly from individu-
Organization
als or private foundations. It is the sum of Lines 1b, 1c and 1f of Part VIII of Form 990.
We also noted whether an organization reports Joint Costs, which typically are fundraising
solicitations that also provide an educational component. Organizations can include some of
these costs as program services. It’s legitimate, but potential donors might want to consider
this when they assess a charity’s value.
A number of organizations, most prominently Salvation Army, were dropped from consideration, because they aren’t required to file 990s, rendering apples-to-apples comparisons
impossible. Non-501(c)(3) organizations also were scratched. Donor-advised funds, which
distribute money to charities, weren’t considered.
Other charities, most prominently Goodwill Industries International and United Way of America, weren’t included, because they have local affiliates that file separate tax documents, and
the national group couldn’t produce complete information—again eliminating the possibility of
accurate comparisons. Others who didn’t provide that information include Boys and Girls Clubs
of America, Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA. Also excluded were well-known
charities that either didn’t meet our criteria or failed to provide information, such as American
Bible Society, Camp Fire USA, Children’s Health Fund, Children’s Miracle Network, Ducks Unlimited, Mental Health America and YWCA USA.
