Did you ever wonder why . . . ?
 

 
Fundraising

"Not for profit" means no "investors" get to share in the profits of a growing company.
It does not mean the participants don't pay themselves first, and very well, thank you.

Here are a very few grant examples of the way your donations to charity or a worthy cause, after salaries and expenses of course, are being spent to "fight cancer", "run for the cure" etc.

Note that not a single dollar appears to be spent on "finding a cure"
All of the $1.6 million is being spent for studies, education and raising awareness.

Are you impressed with the productive way your donations are being spent?
I think not.
