For the past 15+ years I have received appeals to attend their annual gala and donate. One is never told how much these events actually net. There is no communication from nor about the B&GC;between annual appeals. Though I have written them 3 times in past 6 years to not send me such appeals, I still get them. No one has ever contacted me either. I suspect they are not managing their direct mail well and wasting postage and overhead dollars, using a costly and unsuccessful 'blanketing' approach. Good fundraising is strategic and maximizes return on investment.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have well known and vibrant youth facilities and programs that significantly enhanced children's lives, assuming they could manage it well.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
