Global spending priorities
Americans are very generous when it comes to donating time or money to charity.

Having said that, by far the vast majority of Americans make their donations in their own back yard.

Less than 2% of all U.S. charity --just 2 cents on the dollar-- goes overseas.

co-founder of FCF, a California-based 501c3
