Based on its 2020 tax return, we calculate that Wounded Warrior Project spent 36.1 percent of its $276.3 million budget on overhead. This is higher than our recommended 25 percent overhead spending.
Additionally, Wounded Warrior Project used joint cost accounting for 7.2 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.
Furthermore, according to the New York Attorney General, Wounded Warrior Project reported raising $258,467.39 from solicitation campaigns using professional fundraising firms between 2013 and 2020. Of this, only $104,642.64 (40.5 percent) went to the charity; the rest was kept by the solicitors. Read more here.
The mission of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
