In advance of #GivingTuesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James released a report warning New Yorkers that nearly thirty percent of all money given to charitable causes and organizations is pocketed by professional fundraisers.
Most people don’t realize that many non-profit organizations hire outside companies to raise revenue for their work. Sadly, many fundraisers collect fees so large that charities receive only a fraction of the donated funds. In fact, Newsday reported that “in 31% of the campaigns examined by James’ office, less than 50% of the funds went to charity while expenses exceeded revenue in 17% of campaigns, costing charities nearly $17 million.”
Please know that New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation does not use professional fundraising services. We rely upon God’s grace and the generosity of donors to support this work. When you give to NYFRF, you can do so with confidence knowing that 100% of your contribution is going right back into advancing our mission. We want to be wise stewards of the funds the Lord entrusts to our care. Donated funds to this organization are never used to line the pockets of fundraising professionals.
Whether it’s helping churches and Christian schools navigate government policies during a pandemic, defending pro-life pregnancy centers from big government intrusion, educating voters through our voter guide initiative or ministering through legislative Bible studies—your contributions make it all possible.
We hope you’ll remember NYFRF with a generous donation. Tax-deductible donations can be made via stock transfer, online or by check. Checks can be made payable to “NYFRF” and sent to: PO Box 131, Spencerport, NY 14559-0131.
Thank you for your gracious support!
