Re: Why I don't donate to big charities

"Most private schools in the UK are charities, as that allows them to be VAT exempt. I'm not sure what good work they might be doing, other than maybe giving a few bright-but-poor kids an education."

Well, sure.... like anything else in this life, you'll get the odd exception here and there, but fact remains even if you remove the exceptions from the 250,000 charity figure, you are still left with more than enough choices that meet whatever ethical concerns you may have whilst also not mandating you to donate to the "brand name" charities.
