"Three times a year, the venerable AIP analyzes publicly reported information from charities and issues a report card grading how well these organizations spend their money. Unlike other charity analysts, AIP digs past the face-value data to get a more accurate measure of how effective a charity is," according to the article.
"In its latest report, AIP gives the deceptively named Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) a 'D' grade, yet again. Last year, AIP gave HSUS a 'D' grade, twice, due to the animal rights group's lackluster performance in using donors' contributions. Even the organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has a 'C-plus' grade."
Notably, 4-H and Farm Aid both received an 'A' grades.
Come on, HSUS and PETA. Why the poor grades? Perhaps you aren't being honest about where your funds are going to?
