How much of each contribution is spent on administrative costs?

For fiscal year 2019, $0.83 of every dollar will be invested into community programs, vs. the national nonprofit average of $0.63.
This means $0.17 cents of every dollar funds programs like 2-1-1 and covers administrative and fundraising costs. (The Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance sets the maximum recommended rate for overhead costs at nonprofit organizations at 35 percent.)
