America's Most Cost-Effective Charities (AMCEC) is an IRS recognized tax-exempt federated group representing charitable organizations that have an operating overhead of five percent or less.
AMCEC helps you make every dollar count by gathering together highly respected national charities that spend 95 percent or more of their revenue on their programs and services.
There are many benefits to giving to AMCEC:
All AMCEC agencies are screened annually to ensure that they meet the highest standards of substantive program services, management and fiscal responsibility.
AMCEC is governed by a board of directors that includes representatives from member charities, donor groups, and other constituencies. All board members are volunteers serving without compensation. The board of directors oversees the administration of services to AMCEC member agencies and ensures that high eligibility standards are maintained. It does NOT determine how much money each agency will receive - that decision is left to the contributor. Gifts made directly to AMCEC are shared among all its member agencies in the same proportion as each has received donor-designated gifts.
