    Nowadays they want you to be a paid member since those of us "wonk wannabes" were using their stats to get information. However there is a way to view a particular charity and there are other ways as well by perhaps visiting a mega-non and asking for the information, filing a Freedom of Information Act Request and often if you call your state or federal legislators they can get this information for you.

    The truth is whenever government gives out grants We The People have a right to know ~ in spite of the fake outrage these mega-nons and the government may try to put on. it takes some legwork and some moxie as many times you are treated as if you are a terrorist for have the "nerve" to ask for this information.

    The WI women I mention below often "went under cover" working as volunteers in fundraisers, offices, stores, etc. They took pictures and kept diaries, took recordings of meetings along with other "nefarious" actions. They got the required public information these organizations are supposed to provide but refused to give to the public but try to hide. But these rich nons and the government know most people do not have the time or the oprganization to do any of this and so it goes on and on and on ...

    Hope this helps ...
