Based on its 2022 tax return, Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust has net assets equal to 5.12 times its $10.3 million annual budget. This may be an indication that the group is spending too little of its donations on programs. We recommend net assets exceed no more than 3 years of the group’s annual budget.

Furthermore, according to the New York Attorney General, the Disabled American Veterans collected $70,902.02 in third-party solicitation campaigns in 2021, with net $15,761.82 (or 22%) going to the charity. This means the organization paid a third-party solicitor more than it raised during the solicitation campaigns. Read more here.
