Except that they force christianity on native americans, who didn't have freedom of religion until 1978, and force their students to do fundraising to fund the school, even though the school raises over 50 million a year, and doesn't spend a fraction of that on the school. http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2014/11/24/st-josephs-indian-school-has-learned-lesson-about-fundraising-157977

They are a branch of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. That group has non-profit status, and St. Joseph's Indian School carries the status as a result. As a religious organization, they are not required to file full IRS Form 990. There is a lack of disclosure. Highly questionable practices and a large overhead. http://greatnonprofits.org/org/st-josephs-indian-school "Raise $67 million a year and $145 million in the bank for 200 children." In 2014, a report was bad. http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/17/us/south-dakota-indian-school-fundraising-investigation/ There was a huge mailing with an inserted Dreamcatcher feather piece from China and fake letters. To me, it looks like a fraud, taking a real school and vastly over-raising funding on a huge overhead to pay off whomever is involved in it. How can a school of 200 kids need to have a bank account of well over $100 million? There are many worthwhile charities and ways to check them out. http://www.today.com/money/you-give-check-out-charitys-ratings-1D80330057
