FW: [ujeni] Doctors Without Borders
- Hey Luz et al,
If either you or Rob are gov'n employees there's a booklet called "2000 Ways
to Share" published by the CFC (Combined Federal Campaign) that lists ALOT
of charities and non-profits with a brief description of services, contact
info and the % of total revenue spent on adminstration and fundraising. Any
organization over 25% is starred.
I give a certain percentage of my pay check every pay period directly
through CFC. In addition to MSF (MSF is rate is 10.5%) I also give to:
CARE - admin and fundraising expenses 7.6%
Planned Parenthood of GA - 16.2% (less than International PP at an
Human and Civil Rights Orgasnizations of America - 3.3%
Grady Rape Crisis Center - 3.7%
I try to mix local, national and int'l organizations working in areas I feel
strongly about; international health and developmental, relief and refugee
work, repoductive health, and social justice/human rights issues. They also
have organizations that work with environmental issues, animal rights,
religious service groups, the homeless, "christian orthopaedic partners"
(I'm NOT making that up) - you name it.
Here's the contact info for the booklet, it may be available to anyone:
Combined Federal Campaign
75 Spring Street, Rm P-44
Atlanta, GA 30303
There's also a website: www.opm.gov/cfc
Hope this helps!

Thanks Liz, Don and Cathy,
I took a look at the Doctors Without Borders website and was very impressed.
They have some great info to offer, I really liked their top ten list of the
lesser known humaritarian crises. I did register with them and will probably
send a bit of "Kwacha" their way.
I'd be interested in hearing what other charities volunteers would recommend
and which they feel are worthy of their hard earned money. Rob and I have
made small donations to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate Association)
which seems to do good work with children and the judicial/foster care
systems. Also sent some money to Zero Population Growth and ACU (Association
of Clinicians for the Underserved).
Thanks again for the info
