Charities and YOUR money

UK Charities.

If you are curious to know more about the finances of a UK charity this link will take you to a web site. The rest is easy.
When looking at such finances on this web site or anywhere else, it might be an idea to not attach any importance to percentages spent on administration etc. Why? Because there is no golden rule on how these figures are arrived at, thus leaving room for possible creative accounting by some charities.

Looking at how much money they have in their bank account at year-end might be interesting. More than anything, does the charity in question REALLY do what it claims to? If you are giving it your hard earnt money you might want to make it your business to find out.
