RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina officials say less than half of the nearly $300 million in charitable donations in the past year went to the charities – the rest went to marketing and fundraising companies.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that the secretary of state’s office has released a report showing that only about 40 percent of $282 million donated in the year ending in July went to the charities.

Last year, 60 percent of the money donated went to the charities.

The rest of the money goes to professional fundraising companies that charities hire to raise money for them.

Nonprofit organization leaders say the recession has prompted marketers and fundraisers to take bigger cuts of the donations this year.
