AG Report: Fund Raisers Pocket More Than Charities

Albany, NY – New York's Attorney General has published his annual "Pennies for Charity" report. The report is about the professional telemarketing campaigns of non-profit organizations, and how much of the money raised actually ends up in the pockets of the charities, versus the pockets of the fund raisers. The numbers indicate that charities retain about 33 percent, a figure that has stayed about the same for several years. More from WAMC's Allison Dunne.
