The group I like is the Salvation Army over most of the others due to lower admin costs salaries means more of the donation actually reaches the intended target.
"2. 2001. Red Cross CEO/President Bernadine Healy was forced out following controversy about the Red Cross handling of September 11 funds it raised. Her severance package from the Red Cross was nearly two million dollars.

"Former American Red Cross President Bernadine Healy got salary and settlements totaling $1.9 million the year she left the charity in a dispute over how it handled donations it received after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The nonprofit's latest tax filings show it gave Healy $1.63 million on top of her $296,661 partial-year salary ... at the end of 2001.""

"W. Todd Bassett, National Commander of the Salvation Army, was paid (along with his wife, who also works for the organization) $94,091 in salary and benefits in 2003 (including house and car). (Source: Fayetteville Observer)"
I'm leary of any religious group asking me for money, regardless of the "cause". For a non-denominational donation site:
