Give where charity is love

Give where charity is love

The Acton Institute blog points out that secular charities, big and small, are not using donated funds well. They point out that overhead took up to a third of all the money raised by the UN last year for tsunami relief. And 50 Red Cross employees have been indicted for diverting Katrina relief funds to friends and family.

Rather than give to such agencies, I will continue to direct my charitable giving to Catholic aid agencies and religious orders that have a track record of making the most of what they are given and doing it with an eye toward what charity really is, like the Missionaries of Charity for example.
