Free Software Foundation, How Much Donation They Get?
Worth noting is that the FSF is a four-start charity [http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=8557#.VndSVHUrJD8 ] that spends about 81% of its budget on the programs it claims to deliver. However, their budget is just over a million dollars and in their financial reports it looks as though the program expenses are the personnel expenses. Basically, you're paying for these ten people [https://www.fsf.org/about/staff-and-board ] to run these campaigns [https://www.fsf.org/campaigns/ ] , amongst other activities.
