Based on its 2021 tax return, we calculate that the Paws for Purple Hearts spent 62.1 percent of its $7.2 million budget on overhead. This is higher than our recommended 25 percent overhead spending.
Additionally, Paws for Purple Hearts used joint cost accounting for 38.6 percent of its $7.2 million 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.
Paws for Purple Hearts improves the lives of America’s Warriors facing mobility challenges and trauma-related conditions such as PTSD and TBI by providing the highest quality assistance dogs and canine-assisted therapeutic programs; and by building public awareness about the important role dogs play in helping Warriors along the road to recovery.
