Based on its 2020 tax return, we calculate that Freedom Alliance spent 29 percent of its $8.8 million budget on overhead. This is higher than our recommended 25 percent overhead spending.
Additionally, Freedom Alliance used joint cost accounting for 15.2 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.
Furthermore, the net assets of Freedom Alliance equal 4.61 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 Freedom Alliance. See our lists of Highly Recommended Charities and Recommended Charities for alternatives.
Freedom Alliance is an educational and charitable organization whose mission is to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States, and promoting a strong national defense.
