If you want to help charities that know how to make the most of your gift, you've come to the right place.

Here you will find a list of charities you can support that have operating overhead of ONE PERCENT or less. That means they spend 99 cents or more of every dollar you send them on program activities and just one cent or less on fund raising and administrative costs. Only a handful of charities meet this standard for efficiency.

Each of the charities you see on this site has earned an Independent Charities of America Seal of Excellence for quality administration and program activity.
