Sharp drop in donations to SIDAction
(Blogmensgo, April 3, 2012) Sidaction took only 4.2 million euros this year (figure established April 2, 2012 to 15 h) against 5.3 million last year, down 20% from the 2011 figure.
The disappointing figure of the collection, however, could rise significantly, donations are still being accepted until April 11, 2012. You can still donate via the website Sidaction (payment by check, credit card or PayPal) or SMS (dial 33000 and enter DON).
The money to finance half of Sidaction research (99 researchers in 2011) and half of aid operations and prevention (35,000 beneficiaries and 14 shelter programs in France last year).
Comment. Sidaction communicates figures a little more precise than before. The graphic above shows that 70% of monies collected fund the purposes of the collection. In other words, the costs of collection and administration engulf 30% of the money.
I am not competent in managing associations, but 30%, that sounds high, if not excessive.
