What characteristics must have a charity program in order to function properly? Most of the time I don't consider contributing since I don't know anything about the program.

At minimum I should have public access to the

  • list of all donors and amounts (eventually in realtime, and with some as annonymous)
  • List of all consumers and amounts (since is for charity, shouldn't have any hidden for competitive advantage)
  • Sum of received amounts, and consumed amounts
  • List of all acievements
  • List of persons that donate something except money

Such a charity organization could attract money from me. Till now i didn't see any charity ruled like this, but I donated money to: cultural project initiated by a friend, a philosopher that deserved money in exchange for a tone of podcasts that gave already for free to anyone, wikipedia, a small party that could have been transparent but in the end didn't.
