Ask The Times: Percentage of money to charity

I have just been solicited by a paid fundraiser. If I donate, how much of my contribution will go to the charity?

A. Illinois law requires paid fundraisers to disclose what percentage of your contribution will go to the charity (and what percentage will pay their salaries) if asked, according to the Illinois Attorney General's Office. Violations should be reported to the agency at 1-800-386-5438.
