Donate Wisely

Take Me To Post Comment Form

I recently received a solicitation for the "2018 Statesboro Area Appeal" "The Hospice Support Fund". As a fan and supporter of our local hospice, I read the appeal closely.

First I will congratulate the parent organization, The New Hope Foundation, for the honesty of their appeal. While slightly misleading by intimating local hospice organizations will be the beneficiaries, the reverse of their solicitation contains relevant data on expenditures. Of the money they receive (about 2.5 million dollars last fiscal year), less than 6% goes to "program services". The rest to fundraising, administration and "public education" in conjunction with fund raising.

So, not the best organization for your donation if you want a positive impact on our community and the local hospice. Please give to you favorite charities but give wisely and favor those charities who spend most of their funds on program delivery, not fund raising.

Guns, again
October 05, 2017
I thought the time for gun control debate was after more than twenty innocent five and six year old children were killed in Sandy Hook using a military style assault weapon and a high capacity clip. I was wrong. And after Gabby Giffords was almost killed using a pistol with ...

President Pinocchio
February 13, 2017
The following was sent to both Senators and Congressman Allen. I am extremely concerned about the current President's callous disregard for the separate but equal parts of our government. His crude, insulting comments about judges and members of the Congress who dare to disagree with him, not to mention members ...
