Wildlife charity spent 90% of income on fundraising fees and staff

West Yorkshire wildlife charity Wildlife Rescue Sanctuaries have been accused of spending 90% of its income on external fundraising organisations following the publication today of a report by the Charities Commission. The organisation has now severed ties with the fundraising consultants over the costs.

The charity runs a wildlife and animal hospital in Keighley and also operate school visits and education services. The financial audit by the Charity Commission revealed that in 2012 just 16p in the £1 donated to the charity made it to the charity. The remainder was paid to fundraising organisations and individuals involved in the fundraising.

The Charity Commission found that no system was in place for fundraisers to be required to inform the public of the amount of money that would make it to the charity (solicitation statement).
