Thread: My Issues with orgs asking for donations

  1. #11
    I truly do not trust where the $$$ is going. Is it going into the pockets of the ppl sitting on the board of directors. How much of my dollar actually goes to the cause at hand? I am much happier to give cash to the homeless person on any given corner. I know that it will at least b helping them in some way. They will decide how/what they need. Also,,,I am big in giving food to food pantry’s. Now that,,,I know helps ppl in my community.

    All the donations made to WF go towards server, technical admin costs etc. which are considerable. Without our members' support the site would fold... it's that simple.

    The site does not run on fresh air.

    The board of directors donate their own money to keep the site in the air. As PiP said, we don't run on fresh air.
    I resent the insinuation.

    I do hope you are only speaking in a general sense and not about this site. I do understand that many organizations who ask for donations use the biggest portion of those donations to pay staff and overhead.

    WF is a non profit site. Which means that none of the owners or the staff take a salary or get paid in any way. We are all volunteers who love this site and what it represents.

    Our staff are wonderful and hard working people. All the donations, plus what the owners put in of their own money, goes to keeping the site open and running smoothly. All money goes back into the site.

    Double post, sorry
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Amazon Pay allows businesses to accept payments via patrons' Amazon accounts. Just sayin'.
