Based on its 2020 tax return, we calculate that the Paws for Purple Hearts spent 56.6 percent of its $6.1 million budget on overhead. This is higher than our recommended 25 percent overhead spending.
Additionally, Paws for Purple Hearts used joint cost accounting for 26.6 percent of its budget. While legal, this accounting method can disguise overhead costs as program spending. We recommend that no more than 5 percent of a budget be allocated to joint cost accounting.
Paws for Purple Hearts improves the lives of America’s Warriors facing mobility challenges and trauma-related conditions such as PTSD and TBI by providing the highest quality assistance dogs and canine-assisted therapeutic programs; and by building public awareness about the important role dogs play in helping Warriors along the road to recovery.
