Anyone who has donated to the National Cancer Research Foundation in Adelaide will be pleased to know that less than 1% actually went to a charity. Most of your money raised has been swallowed up by commissions, management fees, travelling expenses and drivers. One of the directors blames it on start up costs. The company made $197,160 in the first year and donated $935 and in the following year $387,864 with $4,900 donated. Hmm, the Office of the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner who monitors charities, said they are hoping to introduce a new policy making it compulsory for all charities to publish their financial details to make them more transparent and accountable. That would be nice!
