Today we will explore the wonderful charitable world of fundraising
Action for Children had an income of £200.408.000.00 last year.

Of that income £21.779.000.00 was 'voluntary income
Of that figure £2.655.000.00 was 'investment income so we have 'donated' income £19.124.000.00 (shops,donations,fundraisers etc)
So voluntary income is 10% of total income the rest coming from various gov,LA etc sources

So what do the do with the 19 million?
well £11.983.000.00 is spent on generating voluntary income
of that £67.000 is spent on administering the investment income which I removed from the income so will remove leaving £11.916.000.00 spent asking you to give them money

£11.916.000.00 is 62% of £19.124.000.00 that means for every pound you give they spend 62p on asking you for more.

If you were running a business would you run it for the benefit of 10% of the customers if their needs conflicted with the wants of 90% of your customers ? No you would not! so given that gov, LA's etc are 90% of Action for Childrens customer base we can draw our own conclusions

With the figures that have been revealed on here about some of these big 'charities' one has to question the whole basis of their status. No outfit getting the bulk of its funds ex government rates as a charity in my view. Does anyone kno what the Charity Commissioners' defibnition is?Something is hugely out of kilter, anyway. But how to change the system...?

they pass the public benefit test by means of the services they provide even though those services are commissioned by government.
Also there is 'The Third Sector' this acts as a clearing house taxpayers money flows in and is then distributed by the third sector to the other charities.
Then we have the charities within charities NSPCC administer Childline although Childline is supposed to be a separate entity you find the NSPCC 'forget' and blur the boundaries.
I think that any charity not reliant on public donation given freely by the donor for at least 50% of it's TOTAL income should cease to be a charity.
If you consider BECTA is a charity you see that really the system is flawed.

I pointed out some of these numbers to my local radio station, who are highlighting some of the dodgy collection companies, from the perspective of what happens tot he money that does reach the charities. They did read out my email but avoided mentioning the charities by name. I'll keep an ear open to see if they check up my quoted numbers and do a more in-depth thing later.
