givewell.org is a site to go to and see how a charity rates in terms of where its money goes.

LOVE the pie charts that show where money goes for any organization. There is a clear layout of activities, spending, and a bottom line recomendation for the charity, and it sites its sources.

Family Circle magazine recommended it as a place to go to and check on any charity you are thinkind of supporting. I am glad I did -- was planning on giving to a new and highly advertised charity. The article referening givewell.com was very timely in that I found out the charity was paying it's president and CEO more that $650,000!!!!! AND there was 30% of their donations that were unaccounted for. My charity $ should be spent better than that. I was also glad to see my other charities get a thumbs up on the recomendations!
