Thanks, Trembaly! The American Red Cross and the United Way haven't got a dime from me in years and won't in the future. More donations to the Salvation Army Santa's this year!

If you get financial help from the ARC - like housing after a disaster the American Red Cross expects you to pay it back! So why donate to them at all? The United Way is a clearing house for all other charities - some of whom I don't want to fund... so I don't donate to them either. I am very careful about who gets what little money I have and those that are all volunteer are the ones I choose.
My wife and I have are president and treasurer for a local charitable corporation for the last 7 years and haven't even asked to be re-imbursed for gas for the traveling (considerable at times) we have done. If you are committed to a cause you don't need to get paid.

I never donate to the big organisations because they are almost inevitably both politically left of centre & anti private gun ownership.
I have collecting boxes in the shop for two charities (RNLI & Multiple Sclerosis) that get any change customers tell me to keep & I support the UK Poppy Appeal which goes to helping veterans here.
The UK government sees fit to give away £billions from UK taxpayers every year & I reckon I have done my bit for foreign causes without option, so they won't get a voluntary contribution on top.
