BBA Wise Giving Alliance non-profit organizations should allocate 65% of total expenses on program activities, with the remainder going to fundraising or administrative needs. The Alzheimer’s Association actually gives a minimum of 79% of its total budget to the needs of Alzheimer’s, a standard possible because of the tremendous volunteer support.
