Comparing the other charities that support vets, Wounded Warrior Project spends more money on fundraising than any other veteran charity.
"What is an extra $75 million to help wounded troops and veterans?
"That is how much more money the Wounded Warrior Project could have spent on direct aid in 2014, if it managed its donations like other top-rated military charities.
"But as others strived to spend most of every dollar on people in need, the nonprofit group instead pumped one-third of its donations into more fundraising. It had grown into a charity colossus that collected $312 million in donations and modeled itself on Starbucks, CEO Steven Nardizzi told the New York Times this week."--Travis Tritten, Stars and Stripes
