Donors are increasingly skeptical of how their carefully placed contributions are used. It seems that across the board donors are fed up with the scandals, the misplaced money, or the unwillingness to disclose exact money allocation among some nonprofits.

A recent article, “Where does your money really go?“, takes a broad view of this issue.

Worth the reading if you ever wondered how your money is spent by nonprofits. There’s even a brief mention of new philanthropy – though I think the author could have developed this further or giving a bigger nod to the upsurge in alternatives coming available to the average giver (like giving circles, for instance).

As always with these types of things, I admit that not all nonprofits act irresponsibly or squander generous donors’ money — but one just can’t be too careful these days.
