Cyclone Giving

As we said yesterday, cyclone related giving is off to a relatively slow start as many donors remain hesitant to contribute while Myanmar's government continues to block aid from reaching the victims. How slow? Here are the tallies so far for a few of the charities that are engaged in the relief efforts (as printed in the Chronicle of Philanthropy):
Save the Children: >$3 million
World Vision: >$2.75 million
International Rescue Committee: $1.375 million
Mercy Corps: approximately $1 million

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
