I read this the other day and was floored. 2007 was a good year for the Cancer Fund of America. They raised a whopping $17 million!!!! Nice.....right? Ummmmm...no. They donated $54,000 to non-cancer groups and of that $54,000 they had to donate $50,000 to a court agreed cancer charity due to a legal settlement.

Also the B.B.B . states the 99% of all their cash donations go to salaries and other non related expenses.

Never fear tho....the higher ups are raking it in with the salaries of the president, his two boys and a son in law totalling a mere $537,000.

I will definitely do research next before I make any donations.

Not surprised by this, they're just another in a long line of "charities" distributing a trickle of the money they raise to whatever cause they "support."

My philosophy (I know you all care) when it comes to giving money or time is: do it locally. The closer the organization is to your community the easier it is to know where the money went. Besides, I like to know that my efforts helped those nearest me.

All of the cancer organizations are scams.

Anytime a cause or organizations personal best interest does not rest in it's success in treating whatever ailment, you know they are full of #.

For example, Susan B Komen...what do you think would happen to them if cancer was actually cured? Conflict of interest is the only name of the game for these cancer organizations. If you want to help the cause...donate to a group lobbying for the FDA to stop restricting the sale of Sodium Dichlorocetate which causes apoptosis in cancer cells when administered with a caffeine regime and backed up by a ketogenic diet.

That will never happen though because even though there are no side effects of taking SDCA they still make it illegal for stores to sell. Why? It cures cancer. I gave it to a family member and their tumor went away in a week.

Either way, you'd probably enjoy the documentary Pink Ribbons Inc....it's on Netflix.

I don't donate because cancer has been cured many times over. And they know it, so its all a rip off.

Sadly to say, that is a common practice of most of these charities. If fifty percent of your donation actually goes to people you are lucky.

I like shopping at vinnies and donating stuff to their store. It seems that they actually help a lot of people with the money they raise from that program. Local people, people I may know. The Salvation army is also a good organization, they supply a few part time jobs.

Even if a cancer charity is legit, they give their money to doctors at high costs. I would rather see retired doctors helping people with a small reimbursement for supplies or gas. Costs of distributing and acquiring money can be considered part of the costs for these charities.

Not all charities are bad, I would research the charity well before donating. The charity may think they are doing good, but if they eat up over half the donations in clerical work, than they are just providing their staff with employment. There are also labor intensive programs that have to have three or four outlets at their centers to handle goods. Feeding America is one of those kind of organizations. They distribute a lot of food to organizations locally and also run monthly a monthly food bank for those who need it. They do have volunteer labor also but you still need some to manage the program and make sure it is running smoothly. Some times there are no volunteers and cases of food still need to be distributed.

Does anyone remember after Katrina all the fraud charities sprang up? Everyone was like, how do we know if its legit?

Then we learned that most charities were self serving, rarely donated more than 5 percent to the cause they claimed to support. That sounds about right. I remember hearing that Bernie Madoff took a lot of charities for a ride by appealing to their higher sense of greed.

The Susan B Komen foundation irks the hell out of me. They turned down a sizable amount of money from a well known porn site. If you are serious about funding breast cancer research and raising awareness, as long as the money is legit does it really matter the source? The figure was estimated to be over a million US dollars; I personally know a lot of research labs that would gladly accept that money to continue their research. In all honesty, is a porn site giving money for breast cancer any more repugnant than a charity that eats up 99% of its profit and the CEO's making six-figure salaries? I think not.

The people in charge are the #ing criminals, thats for sure! You can never be to sure when donating money to a charity these days, which is a shame because I know there are probably some charities which do a really good job for the people of it! But now its more about paying wages and # it should not be going to!

With so much evidence already out in regard to nature based cancer cures long being stifled by 'establishment' authorities, I can't help but cringe at such organizations raking in money from well meaning people over the decades.

Just one scam of many in a sick world becoming sicker by the day.

I agree 100%!!! I feel your frustration. I work way to hard to raise and support my family. I understand charities needing to pay for salaries and expenses but this should be criminal.

That's so true. We donate some clothes and a little money to a women's shelter here in town and that's really about it. My wife donates some to some cancer chaity. I can't remember off hand which one but i will definitely ask her.

This is common with ALL charities, and non-profits. The lions share of the money goes into the fat cats pockets. I just read an article recently that talked about non-profits funneling money from donors who wish to remain anonymous, through other non-profits, till the money makes it where the donor wants it to go. 99% of charities and non-profits seem to be nothing more than a scam.

Most of these charities are scams. TPTB don't want to cure any diseases. Then they lose customers. It is much more profitable to offer expensive (and painful) treatments than cure anything.

Most everything in the mainstream that is based on donations are based on the propagated lie. Cures have been hidden for most diseases in fact it is the reverse........they are causing us cancer and a multitude of diseases. It's a slow kill, keep you down and dumb agenda.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

A good resource for checking on charities available at the Charity Navigator.
