A friend of mine was recently doing a fundraiser for a sick child in her local area. They had a big fundraising day, and my husband and I participated in a couple of the efforts.
I looked to see if they posted how much money they ended up raising, and I haven't seen anything. She posted some pics from the event, today on FB, and I asked her how much they raised. Her response was, "A lot!" It appears they aren't going to disclose the actual amount of money.
I have done a fundraiser myself, and have participated in several as well, and the amount is always disclosed. And in fact, a lot of places usually have a running tally when they receive donations.
For some reason, them not stating how much money was raised sort of bothers me for some reason, but I'm not sure if it should or not. I guess I feel like with fundraisers, there should be a lot of transparency with them, so maybe this is why it bothers me?
Is there sort of an unspoken etiquette rule that you should disclose the amount raised? Or does it not matter at all?
