Doing charity is like investing. Cut down middlemen fees

Donating to charity is like investing. To ensure that we get the most out of our money, we have to cut down middlemen fees. This is easy to do, yet ignored. Write a cheque directly to the charity. Never donate through agents hired by the charity to solicit for money. If you donate through these agents, part of your money goes into pockets of these mercenary agents and not the charity that you want to help.

Moral of story:
If any of you want to donate, donate directly to the charty. Write a cheque directly to charity.

Recently, I have been irritated by agents of charities who blocked my path, waste my time to solicit for donations. I discovered a substantial number of these "professional outsourced beggars" come from this company.

Appco Group Fundraising is the largest face-to-face donor recruitment agency globally. Fundraising now generates considerable revenue for charities and non-profit organisations across the globe.

This is true news. Read the source.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/...ecial-olympics

A global company that raises funds on behalf of some of Australia’s largest charities will be investigated after it emerged that 96% of the $12.2m it raised for Special Olympics Australia was not retained by the charity.

NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing says it will investigate Appco Group over gift voucher program
