I would have given them zero stars if I could. Got a call from this group claiming I gave them $20 last year. I didn't remember the name, and I run all charities I donate to through the BBB website as well as the Nonprofit report. When I said as much to the operator, she practically hung up on me. Sure enough, when I checked there were no financials, no listing of who specifically benefits and no accountability. Needless to say, no donation.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have them audited by the IRS and expose them for the fraud they are.

Got sucked into donating by a phone call. Received the pledge letter and started to google. SO GLAD I came across this website and the BBB rating. Wrote on the pledge I would not donate due to bad rating at guidestar.org AND not being BBB accredited. :) Thank you.

I donated 25 dollars last year, for breast cancer research, but when they called this time, I said I would look them up on the internet, and they hung up on me, before I finished the word "internet"

Just look at the 1099. Most of the money goes to the fundraising firm and to a "management entity". Mission statement states money goes for medicines to South America and to persons who lost their homes to fire. Very little if any money goes to breast cancer research and THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM ENTITY, best I can see. We will not contribute.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close it down. Be honest. Support REAL breast cancer organizations.

THIS IS A SCAM CHARITY. I got a call tonight about a supporting this charity with a $20 donation. I asked the representative to tell me which charities specifically receive the funds from their work. The representative couldn't answer the question and she referred me to the website www.bcrsf.org. I went to that site and it directed me to the parent company Community Charity Advancement. Here is the website: http://www.communitycharityadvancement.org/about-us.aspx

This "charity" has a high amount of expenses which are nearly EQUAL to the amount that it raises. Some of those expenses may actually be paid to charities but they don't list which charities they actually support. Secondly, hidden in those expenses could possibly be the high salaries for the "board" and for the "CEO". None of the people listed on the website check out.

Don't give them a single cent - you're supporting the director's and CEO's salaries, not funding breast cancer research.

SCAM SCAM SCAM - this organization and one of it's affilates Breast Cancer Research & Support Fund WILL not respond to BBB requests for information to determine whether the charity meets BBB guidelines for charities. Donate to reputable and known breast cancer fumds such as Susan G Kommen. I DID NOT DONATE UNTIL I RESEARCHED THEM AND AM GLAD I CHECKED THEM OUT.

Got the phone call, the letter and wrote the check. Before I put the stamp on I decided to check this org out. Needless to say I did not waste my stamp and I tore up the check. There should be a special place in ....(you know where) for folks like this. Lost my mother and sister to breast cancer. I will continue to give to legit charities, but learned a lesson. JJ in MS

Received a phone call soliciting a donation that purportedly would be used to help women get mammograms. Having lost my mother to the disease 8 years ago plus a dear friend and my sister being diagnosed 3 years ago (thank God she is doing fine now) I have always been advocate for Breast Cancer Research & funding to help people get treatment. So I agreed to $25, when the paperwork arrived it seemed odd to me when they mentioned the professional company hired to do their fundraising, what does that cost them? So as I always do with any charity I checked Charity Navigator to see the financials, any group that has a low rating due to high admin costs dont' get my money, but this group did not exist at all. What I did find online including their own website is very brief and did not answer any of my concerns. I returned the letter indicating I would not be contributing and remove my name from thier list,, this seems very much a scam!

The people who call me are always very professional and polite. I donate to them on a monthly basis, the organization is fairly new, started in 2010, so that might be why there isnt much info out about it yet.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?
