You know I read that somewhere as well so I had to turn to Snopes.com to see what they said, and they reported this as a falsehood. Which they updated this information 4 hours ago according to their website.

to quote Snopes: The claim made in the email above, that 73 percent of donations fund executive salaries and overhead, is demonstrably false. In their 2014 disclosures, The ALS Association reports a breakdown of their expenditures — only seven percent of their total fund intake goes to administration and salaries. Of the remaining 93 percent of funds, 32 percent is allocated to professional and public education, 28 percent goes directly to research, 19 percent is marked for patient and commmunity services, and 14 percent is allocated to fundraising.
