"We're a national charity, we're needed nationally, but in order to outreach nationally, we need either staff or a company that can do mass-mailing," Kraft said.
"The cause is just, the need is great, but the means to reach out to millions of people, it just isn't there [because] it's a small charity with big hearts."
Kraft said charities should be evaluated based on the services they provide rather than solely their financial information.
"Many nonprofits get really bad grades based on the fact that … they outsource their fundraising, which is what we did," Kraft said.
"What we do with the money we get from the fundraiser is what we should be judged on."
This type of holistic thinking has also been endorsed by watchdog organizations themselves.
Kraft referred The Phoenix to a letter from the presidents of watchdog agencies BBB Wise Giving Alliance, GuideStar and Charity Navigator that advises donors that the ratio of fundraising and administrative spending to programming spending, also known as "overhead," was not an accurate depiction of charities' value.
