      in any organization you can find out exactly who does what they do and why IF you just look at the money.

      perhaps someone is worth 600k a year , i dunno.... but i do know that those who a making $0 arent getting rich doing it!

      Yes, before donating to any cause at all, demand, receive, and carefully read that charity's P&L statement. (I know that charities don't really have "P&L statements," but if that's what you ask for, they'll know what you want.)
      • Find out exactly what percentage of your donation will go toward fund-raising and staff salaries, and what percentage will go to the actual recipients of the charity.
      • Further, find out what the "delivery system" is. For instance, money donated to earthquake relief for Haiti has done very little, since the Haitian government has no means of aid distribution, and private distributions are scattered and somewhat ineffective.

      The Red Cross has been shown to be slipshod and ineffective in some of their more important endeavors, for instance in monitoring the quality of their blood supply. They also sometimes charge aid recipients for the services this so-called charity delivers.
      The Salvation Army, however, as an appositive "for instance," delivers free and useful aid without ever questioning the recipient's religious affiliation.

      Very carefully pick the charities to which you donate. Do your research.

      I wouldn't swear to it, but I don't think that the NRA is a charity, and I don't think donations to the NRA are tax-deductible.

      NRA is a 501 (c)(3) and is listed as an educational organization.
      NRA -ILA is not tax exempt and can lobby.

      My error.
      The NRA Founbation is tax deductible.
      The NRA itself is NOT a 501

      Not a big deal. Excuse my lack of tact. The entire point of my original post was to suggest that folks know all they can about who they plan on donating to. I s'pose I should have just said that instead of trying to draw a parallel. MY error.....
