    Donald Trump announced Friday he raised $6 million for veterans at his fundraiser in Iowa the night before. Iowa was amazing last night. The event could not have worked out better. We raised $6,000,000 for our great vets. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) > But this would appear a significant increase from what he's given to the cause before, according to some reports which questioned whether the billionaire businessman has been a consistent donor to vet groups. Showbiz 411 reports that the Donald J. Trump Foundation gave a total of $2.6 million in charitable donations in the last three years,...
  • In Search Of The Red Cross' $500 Million In Haiti Relief (built 6 permanent homes)

    NPR ^ | Laura Sullivan
    When a devastating earthquake leveled Haiti in 2010, millions of people donated to the American Red Cross. The charity raised almost half a billion dollars. It was one of its most successful fundraising efforts ever. The American Red Cross vowed to help Haitians rebuild, but after five years the Red Cross' legacy in Haiti is not new roads, or schools, or hundreds of new homes. It's difficult to know where all the money went. NPR and ProPublica went in search of the nearly $500 million and found a string of poorly managed projects, questionable spending and dubious claims of success,...

  • Charity at Christmas

    01/06/2016 6:24:36 AM PST · by NRx
    As I've mentioned in previous blogs, some of the church fathers saw the giving of charity as a financial transaction which put God in debt to us (see for example my blog: Christmas: Give a Coat, Receive Immortality). No doubt the imagery was used as an incentive to get people to give to charity. The idea was based on interpreting particular passages of the Gospel. Below is a quote from St. John Chrysostom in which he portrays giving your goods to charity as a way to transfer them to heaven. When you arrive in heaven, you will be able...

Banking giant HSBC has stopped offering financial services to the charity Islamic Relief, which becomes the latest Muslim organisation to have its ties with the company cut. Islamic Relief UK was told by HSBC its activities in "high-risk jurisdictions" posed a challenge to the bank due to pressure from US authorities to deal with money laundering, according to a statement published on the charity's website on Monday.

    Texans cherish the memory of Davy Crockett's heroic death at the Alamo in 1836 but few know what led him there or why he fought so valiantly. Throughout his life, Davy Crockett was renowned for his love of liberty and fierce loyalty to the Constitution. Originally a Democrat, Crockett found he could no longer identify with the party's positions which he believed were straying from our country's founding principles. As a man who believed in individual liberty and the principle of congressional restraint this shift was unacceptable to him. He left the party in 1833 and joined the Whig party...

    News Examiner ^ | 8/15 | Ben Davis
    How miserly is The Donald? From 1990 through 2009, Trump has personally donated a total of just $3.7 million to his foundation, which was incorporated in 1987. In fact, the billionaire is not even the largest contributor to his own charitable organization. Tax returns show that World Wrestling Entertainment has given Trump’s foundation a total of $5 million in return for the developer’s assistance in working a couple of televised angles along with WWE boss Vince McMahon. The WWE gave Trump’s foundation $4 million in 2007 for his help in promoting that year’s WrestleMania festivities, and another $1 million in...

    Earlier this month I was reading an article from Ester Bloom at The Atlantic dealing with the burgeoning trend of crowdfunding which raises some perplexing questions. She starts out by noting that there’s been something of a cultural shift in America on the subject of money. There was a time when asking for money was a rather uncomfortable subject and people generally only fell back on that approach as a last resort. It was not that long ago that people were squeamish about asking each other for money. Bringing up the subject of personal finances at all used to be...

    There was a time in my life twenty years ago when I was driving a cab for a living. It was a cowboy's life, a gambler's life, a life for someone who wanted no boss, constant movement and the thrill of a dice roll every time a new passenger got into the cab. What I didn't count on when I took the job was that it was also a ministry. Because I drove the night shift, my cab became a rolling confessional. Passengers would climb in, sit behind me in total anonymity and tell me of their lives. We were...

The organisation carried out a survey of 1,300 of its 30,000 volunteers and found around one in five was unwilling to work with asylum seekers. The reasons given ranged from ‘I’d rather see our borders closed’ to ‘there is nothing for them here’, while others said most refugees are after an easy life.

That last one is especially important given the news over the last few years that the IRS has been targeting conservatives with audits and denial of tax-free status for nakedly political reasons. Well, if the IRS has their way, this may be a luxury that will soon go the way of the dinosaur. A new rule is proposing that non-profit organizations collect...

    The IRS once again has stirred the ire of nonprofit groups, this time with a proposal organizations say could someday require them to collect and hand over the Social Security numbers of their donors. Under the proposed rule, the IRS would create an optional filing for 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Those participating would, as part of their yearly report, turn over the Social Security numbers of any donors who give $250 or more to a charity in a given year. “I don’t know any charity that would adopt this, but those who do will certainly be scaring their donors,” said Mark Fitzgibbons,...

    An offshoot of the Clinton Foundation has announced plans to resubmit its federal tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service, reversing an earlier decision against such a move. The Clinton Health Access Initiative, which offers HIV/AIDS treatment and vaccination programs, had decided on Monday that its 2012 and 2013 990 forms had only minor errors that do not require them to be refiled with the IRS. In the wake of media criticism, however, the group changed its mind again on Wednesday. 'As previously stated, the minor errors on the 2012 and 2013 CHAI 990s are immaterial and do not require...

The Bradford-based Human Relief Foundation has been running a project to help the refugees at the makeshift camp and previously claimed they were all fleeing war and significant atrocities.

    Nothing has defined Carly Forina's presidential campaign quite like her outspoken opposition to Planned Parenthood a point she has brought up repeatedly at debates and press conferences. It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains.

    **SNIP** To know NASCO is to understand why Mr. Jones 2007 letter to Lois Lerner, in which he discusses a sentiment for charities to become more transparent, is so typical of NASCOs hypocrisy about transparency, honesty and ethics. Their annual conference was once completely closed off from representatives of nonprofit organizations because NASCO did not like being criticized for their questionable and overbearing tactics. Indeed, in his 2007 letter to Ms. Lerner, Jones criticizes push back from the nonprofit sector. These bureaucrats do not like criticism from those they regulate, and they are effective at chastening their critics. Jones also...

A Barna survey earlier this year found that while 65 percent of Boomers made a personal commitment to Jesus, only 46 percent of Millennials had. They are also 10 percent less likely to believe Jesus was divine, compared to Boomers. Jesus may be losing his luster in our culture of decreasing church attendance and religious beliefs. Still, I find there is a Jesus who everybody loves, the Jesus who modeled what it means to show compassion to the stranger, care for the widow, bind up the...

    The Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage settled little. It merely launched a bigger struggle over the definition of marriage. Now, resistance to Obergefell v. Hodges will join Roe v. Wade in becoming another, long-tailed comet moving across the socio-political skies of America. A third, landmark Supreme Court initiative waits over the horizon. It will involve the 2nd Amendment. Perhaps not soon, but coming. Following Obergefell v. Hodges, much discussion now centers on the potential loss of tax-exempt status to churches that resist. Same-sex marriage zealots will look for opportunities to cement the Courts decision by forcing churches, through the...

    So the organization gave the money back. And now they want your help. A $50,000 donation is cause for celebration at the Queen Anne offices of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington. We have these little clapper thingies, and the clappers go mad when we get that kind of gift, says the councils CEO, Megan Ferland. So when Ferland came back to the office earlier this spring and announced that shed just landed a $100,000 donation, the place went mad. Not only did it represent nearly a quarter of the councils annual fundraising goal, it would pay to send 500...

    So I'm in a checkout line the other day, and the clerk asks me if I want to donate to this well-known charity. Sure, I say, and the donation is added to my bill. Then, out of curiosity, I look this charity up on Charity Navigator. The charity's president makes quite a bit over $500,000 a year. Well, that just doesn't sit right. Your thoughts?

    - The $200,000 honorarium was the largest the Long Beach, California, organization had ever paid a public figure for an appearance - Normally, speakers donate much of that money back to the small, non-profit that has an annual operating budget of just $3 million - Former secretary of state redirected her check to the Clinton Foundation - which spends $8.1 million a year on travel alone - In 2007, when Bill Clinton headlined the event, he charged the group $150,000 and kept the money for himself Hillary Clinton reportedly charged a Boys and Girls Club chapter $200,000 for an appearance,...

    I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers in the last 2 weeks. My Mom passed on May 24 and we laid her to rest on May 29. Driving up to CT, my car started to fail, the air suspension system was tired, not knowing where it was failing, but on the way home, the warning alarm went off every 25 miles. When I got to Church the day after my mom's funeral, I got a flat tire on the highway that for some reason (THE GRACE OF GOD!) held out until I was safely in the...

    Daily Beast ^ | May 29, 2015 | David Freedlander
    Bill Clinton has a message to all those autocrats, petro-billionaires, compromised television journalists, and corporate titans who have been tied to a series of devastating exposes about the Clinton Foundation and its finances: I feel your pain. And we still need your money. [Snip] At times, the letter reads like a Clinton State of the Union speech of old, with him citing example after example of people who have been helped by the foundations work. One can almost imagine the smallholder farmers in Africa or the women entrepreneurs in Latin America or Wazia Chawala, a farmer and single mother in...

    Beware the Strangest Idol of All – A Reflection on How Even Works of Charity Cannot Eclipse Obedience to Christ By: Msgr. Charles PopeThere is a passage in the gospels that breaks conventions and cuts to the core of what has come to be called the “Social Gospel.”  Before looking at the passage we need to define “Social Gospel.” The phrase “Social Gospel” emerged in the Protestant denominations but has also come to be used in Catholic circles as well. The Social Gospel is an intellectual movement that was most prominent in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The...

    The Clinton Foundation said Thursday it received as much as $26.4 million in previously undisclosed payments from foreign sources, universities, large corporations. South Korea, Thailand and Nigeria. Etc. This after forgetting to disclose 1,100 foreign donors. This after the Clinton Foundation failed to report $$tens of millions in foreign donations on their taxes, forcing them to refile at least five years worth of returns. Im sure the IRS is cool with that after all, they dont have Tea Party, Conservative , Christian or Palin in the name of their organization Friend me on Facebook no one turned...
