the charity gets 100%, then its split something like 80% to programs, 10% to admin, 10% to the fundraisers... which is peanuts considering how much they put up with... if you help out for a month or so then cancel, you're costing the charity more so don't waste their time... if you're too selfish to help out for long term or can't afford it then don't waste the guys effort... he'd rather you say no straight up, than waste his energy on gutless people who can't say no thank you... they work hard enough to make a big difference in this messed up world which, by the looks of it is more than you're ever going to be doing.

Seven prominent Australian charities spent more than 40 per cent of donations on the "cost of fundraising".
Surf Life Saving Foundation Incorporated was the biggest spender - using 62 per cent of its $23.8 million gross fundraising revenue on administration costs.

We used to have Mormons always come to our door in our old house and usually dh was out the front doing something when they did stop by and he is too polite to brush them off, he talked to them a lot and then that encouraged them to keep coming. It got quite annoying. I started keeping the front gate locked when dh was away at work but they would sit there calling out, I would just get quite abrupt and they got the message and if they came over when dh was home he was sent outside to deal with them, dh got annoyed with them in the end.
The house we are in now though has high solid fencing all round with a "beware of dog" sign so no one attempts to stop by!

DD learned how to open the front gate latch...solution was a small D shackle...reasonably easy for an adult with 2 hands to get off from inside the gate...very difficult to get off from outside the gate. No door knockers since.
