Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is reminding citizens to be smart in selecting charities to support this holiday season.
Each year, the secretary of state’s office publishes a Report on Charitable Organizations in Mississippi. It outlines the financial information of charities registered in the state, in addition to the percentage of charitable funds actually spent by a charity for its charitable purpose.
The Better Business Bureau recommends at least 65% of total expenses of a charitable organization should be spent on program activities directly related to the organization’s purpose.
