Hi. my name is Derek. I am the Co-owner of a company that takes donations and uses the money to give to the poor, like a charity
I know what you are thinking; how do charities not go bankrupt? they give the donations to the poor! Well, I can answer that now.
There are two main ways they stay in business. I will start with the most common one.
They give a majority of it to the cause that they say they will give it to, and keep the rest for themselves, to stay in business.
The first tends to be the most common; The charity starts off like any other business- not much money, trying not to be one of the 50% that fail. Bank loans, favours pulled in, madly advertising. When they get a donation, they are actually quite sneaky about it.
The second is less common, but still happens. The founder is very wealthy, and can afford to have a not-for-profit business, in which they can give 100% of the donation to their cause. Take the McGrath foundation for example. founded by wealthy retired cricketer Glenn McGrath, it puts all of the donations given to it towards research about breast cancer in Australia.
Both leave you rich, so you can have a car like mine - life is sweet! (Its not all easy though- lots of paperwork, normal work, and stress in general involved.
