I should have put "ha ha" after my Hell comment.  I don't truly believe that would be the only reason. 

Good point on keeping it within their "in-group".  But, it has been established with the Salvation Army (as an example) that if they do help other people (missions in Africa, etc.), they do preach.

They are better organized and therefore have better records.  If I send $20 to the Red Cross or put a buck into a fireman's boot at a ballgame or send $20 to groups dealing with MD or alzheimers, nobody know that I did so except of course for IRS!  And even they have no idea that I am an atheist.
However, when my mom gives $ to a faith-based charity or church, they have the record and her $ gets counted as a faith-based donation.
Doesn't mean we don't give; we just don't have the accounting department that they do!
