Fake Charities is the site that tracks just how much of your money the government is giving to “charities”—and at this time of The Big Society, Fake Charities is more relevant than ever.
Just to remind you, a Fake Charity is any organisation registered as a charity with the Charity Commission that derives more than 10% of its income, or which receives more than £1 million, from the state.
Additionally, these organisations will probably spend a large amount of their time lobbying the state to curtail our freedoms, although this is not a prerequisite for inclusion—after all, by applying to be recipients of the state’s “largesse”, these organisations are already actively colluding in theft and curtailing your freedom to do what you will with the profit of your hard work.
Because, of course, we say “the state” but the state has no money apart from that which is extorts from taxpayers. So, when we say that such-and-such an organisation takes x amount of money from the state, what we actually mean is that they accept—no, actively plead for—x amount of money extorted from taxpayers under pain of prosecution.
We have no source of funding for this project and have limited time so please forgive us if we are slow to reply to enquiries.
We do not take a view on the causes that the listed charities campaign for. We object to state-funded lobbying on principle.
