I'm with Bonnie C. here. Too many nonprofits pay their administrative personnel way beyond what is appropriate in my opinion. Look at the national programs for example (MADD, American Cancer Society, Susan Komen, etc.) where the CEO are receiving $$$$$ in salaries. That money should go to the ones it is intended for, not the leaders. We give locally and directly to our nonprofits of choice.

We used to give - & generously - to several nonprofits during this giving "blitz", but after finding out how much each charity actually ends up receiving after the "fees" are deducted, decided to continue our generous annual giving to the nonprofits of our choice personally, without the - ahem - "assistance" of "Give Piedmont Local". Strongly encourage others to do the same.
