Charity Navigator should use its clout to identify major charities using companies like Infocision. Merely warning people is not enough. Charities have a fiduciary responsibility to their donors as well as other stakeholders. They are failing in that duty if they give most of the donation to the fundraiser. There must be enough pressure to discourage groups like the diabetes group from going down this path. This is the only way it can be stopped.
