Study Shows Political Advocacy Donations Reap Big Benefits

According to a report issued by the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, and discussed in today's L.A. Times, it is actually not a bad idea to give money specifically for political causes.  The report, available in full here, "estimates that for every dollar invested in the work of a selection of advocacy groups [in Los Angeles] there was $91 in benefits to local workers."  Wow!  Imagine getting those kinds of returns on any investment.  Put in one dollar, get back almost a hundred.  No wonder people are so concerned about the influence of corporate dollars on our political process.
