I do design work for various charities and advise them as much as possible. I always held these jobs in high regard until the other day.

I net with some people running a charity event. There was mention of one person putting up a £1000 prize which I thought was very generous. They then explained they would claim this back through donations then further claim it through business tax.

They went on to discuss how by UK Charity regulations they are allowed to spend/claim (fiddle?) 40% of the overall funds so say they took £100k, they could basically take £40k for themselves. This horrified me. Its seriously made me think about this whole charity thing.
