A March 2013 article in Crain’s Detroit Business highlighted the cost of fundraising for Michigan non-profit organizations. “Charities receive on average only 35 cents of every dollar raised through contracted professional fundraisers that solicit in Michigan,” according to Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. A March 7 press release from the Attorney General’s office quoted the Better Business Bureau’s Standard for Charity Accountability, stating that charities should “spend no more than 35% of related contributions on fundraising. Related contributions include donations, legacies, and other gifts received as a result of fundraising efforts.” According to the release, Michigan law prohibits charities from “falsely telling donors that 90% of their donations go to the charity, when that is, in fact, not true.”
