Default Anyone here give money to "charity" ?

Most "charities" are scams if someone from a "charity" comes to me asking for money the first question I ask them is how much their CEO is paid.

I don't see why someone like me who is on a low income should be expected to give money to a "charity" when the people who run them are on massive salaries most people can only dream of.

It seems that if you want to get rich the way to do it is to set up a "charity".

Quote:
The number of charity executives paid over £200,000 a year has increased despite efforts to curb pay levels in the voluntary sector.

A survey of boardroom pay among the top 150 charities found that 32 executives were paid over £200,000 last year, up from 30 in 2013.

The number of charity leaders paid over £300,000 also increased from nine to 12 in two years, according to research by Third Sector magazine.

Overall, the median pay level across the top 100 charities in the UK was £165,000 a year – the same as it was two years ago.

The highest paid executive was at the London Clinic, an independent hospital, where one unnamed staff member between £850,000 and £860,000 a year.

Generally NO.
May be Shelter because they give good advice but not Green peace.

Quite often it doesn't go to the victims but into the fat pocket of CEO.

Unfortunately, Red Cross is such example.

Yes, the Mountain Bothy Association. Have been saved from some really bad storms from sheltering in their huts, which are maintained by volunteers.
They are also a great place to meet like minded folks.

For the most part, no.

I'm a firm believer in "charity begins at home" meaning that I would much rather help those in my own community, always astounds me when I see area managers for certain ones driving around in incredibly expensive cars. Surely, that money would have been better spent on helping those in need? I sometimes think a lot of these so-called "charities" are really just companies masquerading as such - and taking advantage of peoples goodwill/trust.

Most charities are run like a business with
a CEO on top.That CEO rakes in thousands of euros
or dollars a month.And for what?
Those charities are in the Charity Business,
they are not interested in solving the problem they
were created for.They are only interested in helping *themselves*
and not the people they are supposed to help.

Short answer : NO

I have never given to no charity, as most are run by criminals, like intel agencies, and such, to steal your money, while given pittance to those you think its going too.

I would much rather, just buy a bag of chips for a homeless person, then ever give to any charity, where admins are raking in most of the monies.

It would be very difficult in this corrupt world, to tell which charities are actually doing what they say they are.

Charities are a good idea in theory, but they are open to enormous amounts of corruption, and playing on peoples ideas they want to do something to help someone. When infact its probably being stolen by some intel agency, to pay for gun running or something.

I have no money, so its rather mute.

But like i said, i would rather buy a bag of chips for a homeless person, and give it to them, then give any money that i do not have to some charity so someone could steal it.

Just look at the charity americans set up for haiti people, cough cough. I doubt much of that well intentioned money got to those that needed it. We all know most of it was stolen, probably like most charity money.

What the OP said about large charities can be true. However, there is usually a local charity or individual around who is worthy of charity if you look hard enough. I'm not saying I give lots to charity, but I do give some to local ones that I like...and I have to say its a nice experience.

Over 200,000 registered charities in the UK, and many more unregistered. Lot of money. Does anything get any better?
