Which is why I don’t donate to big charities, they have to earn a lot of money covering management salaries and marketing budgets before a single dollar goes to where it is needed.

The article is not about that, the article is about essentially scam fundraisers, where 90% of the money goes to fundraisers and 10% covers administrative cost of the “charity”.

Real charities are usually transparent about the percentage of money they dedicate to the started cause. They dedicate somewhere between 75% and 90% of the money they raise to the purpose they serve.
