Four out of five operate on a budget of less than $100,000. So either those operating the "non-profit" are working for free or very little compensation, or very little of their budget is going to direct aid. Please don't misunderstand, I am very grateful for the work that many non-profits do. But non-profits in UT are kind of like churches in MT - we have the Cowboy Church (really - coffee and donuts every Sunday), the Skull Church, the Lone Pine Church. Hey, it beats working for a living. Investigate before you donate. Just because the name has "disabled," or "veteran" or "children" in it doesn't mean that any of those in the label get more than a sniff of what you give.
