Accountability of organizations to their constituencies has become one of the most important aspects of good governance in both the nonprofit and private sectors of our economy. In the charitable sector there is public interest in the effectiveness of organizations and efficiency of raising funds. The media has contributed to this interest through well intended reports to inform the public about fundraising costs.
