Description

Based on its 2018 tax return, we calculate that the Freedom Alliance spent 33 percent of its $7.7 million budget on overhead. This is higher than our recommended 25 percent overhead spending.

The Freedom Alliance used joint cost accounting for 17.4 percent of its budget. While legal, this accounting method can disguise overhead costs as program spending. We recommend that no more than 5 percent of a budget be allocated to joint cost accounting.

The net assets of the Freedom Alliance equal 4.5 times its annual budget. This may be an indication that the group is spending too little of its donations on programs. We recommend net assets exceed no more than 3 years of the group’s annual budget.

We do not recommend giving to the Freedom Alliance. See our lists of Highly Recommended Charities and Recommended Charities for alternatives.
