In the United States, charitable giving has certainly been on the rise. In 2019 alone, more than $546 billion was raised from Americans, foundation giving, and corporations. In terms of charitable giving, health charities are the biggest sectors, as they receive about 9% of the total charitable dollars.
Using Charity Navigator, the team at WristbandExpress ranked health charities based on how much they spend on each afflicted person. Based on the data found, it was determined that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, who spends $273 million on their annual program expenses, spends the most for each afflicted person at $9,089.02 for each of the roughly 30,000 people who live with Cystic Fibrosis in the United States.
This infographic also features information on which programs spend the least amount on each person, and those who spend the highest percentages of their funds on the actual programs.
