The Salvation Army has been identified by author and management expert Peter Drucker as "by far the most effective organization in the United States," The Salvation Army invests the charitable gifts it receives in the lives of men and women and boys and girls.

"No one even comes close to it in respect to clarity of mission, ability to innovate, measurable results, dedication and putting money to maximum use," Drucker said. (Forbes, August 11, 1997).

According to the The Salvation Army Silicon Valley's 2010 annual report, more than 90 cents of each dollar spent by The Salvation Army is used to fund direct services for people.
