Being poor is not a virtue. You make it sound as if poverty is a virtue. If you think that poverty is a virtue, why don't you make yourself poor? What is a virtue is to be generous with the means we have to help those in need, not to make ourselves poor like them. And the Church does that better than any other comparable organization I know.

In a lecture given last month at the University of Oxford, Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said that each year The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spends about $40 million on welfare, humanitarian and other LDS Church-sponsored projects around the world and has done so for more than 30 years.
That would account for approximately $1.2 billion on welfare and humanitarian efforts over the past 30 years.
There are 108 General Authorities each getting $120,000 per annum (plus housing, plus medical plus all sorts of other perks and benefits) = $13,000,000 per year just on stipends.
$40,000,000 globally on welfare, humanitarian etc
$13,000,000 +++ on the pay and benefits of "There are currently, by my count, 108 General Authorities. That’s 0.00317647058 of the number of local unit leaders (bishops and stake, district, and branch presidents) in the Church
." (Who receive no remuneration whatsoever)
I'm betting it wouldn't take 20 minutes of your time to find 100 organisations that do better than that.
