About the Book

Where does your money go when you donate to charity? While the nation’s love affair with charities is still going strong, the increase in indicting news stories over the past several years has heightened the public’s interest, as well as its cynicism. In the midst of such scrutiny, Charity on Trial seeks to demystify what the public should expect from the charitable sector. White breaks the subject down into four parts: an exposé of charities that have misbehaved, a look at the charitable landscape of today, an examination of the issues that charities and donors face, and what people need to know before giving their money away. Ultimately, the book calls for charities to be more transparent to decrease the public’s cynicism and increase the amount of good that legitimate charities can do. Charity on Trial blends recent news with an insider’s perspective on charities in order to help average citizens understand how charitable organizations do, don’t, and should work.
