The American Fund for Charities is a US 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations to it are tax-deductable to the extent allowed by law. The American Fund for Charities is a public charity, which means that it is supported by a number of people rather than being a private foundation with only limited donors.
Because it is a public charity, it is able to support a greater range of charitable endeavors.
The Board of the American Fund for Charities wants to ensure that the maximum amount of money received is used for programs rather than administration. Therefore the board has challenged itself to spend no more than 10% of all gifts received over $500 to cover its administration cost.
