Carolina For the Kids Foundation, formerly known as Dance Marathon, plays it straight with their fundraising.
“We’re focusing on being more transparent with people. The money is actually going where we say it’s going,” said Executive Director Evan Sherwood.
The organization raised $551,595.87 in 2014. Approximately $440,000 was disbursed to N.C. Children’s Hospital.
“It has had a huge impact on the lives of children and families that are being taken care of,” said Dr. Wesley Burks, chairman and chief physician of the N.C. Children’s Hospital.
“There’s not a lot of paying for the extraneous administrative costs. They’re better than the national guidelines from what I’ve seen,” he said.
