Kitsap’s biggest charities …


I’m preparing a story for Sunday about charitable giving, and in the process came up with this list of the biggest Kitsap charities in terms of total assets. I won’t be able to use all of them with the package, so I’ll list them here for you. The source is the National Center for Charitable Statistics. — Rachel Pritchett

  1. And the one group I consider most worthy isn’t even on the list. Probably because they use ALL of the money they collect to feed the hungry and homeless – THE SALVATION ARMY. God Bless Them and please remember them whenever you have a few dollars extra.

  2. Hi Chris ,

    Quite an interesting article you are working on . The assets may be a bit confusing to some of us , because the charties listed here also do other things they charge for , or in the case of Harrison Hospital as example need very expensive equipment and pay out good salaries and provide better then normal benefits to attract good people in the medical field .

    Seems like it will be hard making comparisons when you put them all together . Would be interested in the things like how much of the contribution we send actually makes it to the intended use after expenses .

    We use to have this charity collecting for lost children in this state , only penneys on the dollar actually went to the cause , everything else went to overhead and salaries for the charitable organization Board members. .
