Hmm, checking over the report on Charity Navigator:

55% of expenses related to programs, 36.8% related to fundraising, 8% for administration... Top executive compensation $319k. Ahh, yes, many six figure salaries for alphabet soup positions, always a bad sign. Latest tax year online for examination of form 990? 2010. Really bad sign.

Comparing this to Operation Homefront: 94.3% of expenses related to programs, 2.3% to administration, 3.3% to fundraising. Top executive $174k. A few six figure salaries for top alphabet soup. Last tax year online? 2011.

I was aware of WWP's executive compensation and used to recommend Fisher House as an alternative.
But when I looked them up a few months ago on Charity Navigator, I discovered their CEO made $393,850 in 2011 ... not bad since FH lost $17 million that year.
Since the VA does a fairly good job of helping vets, I always wondered why all these private organizations were around. Now I know.
