Consistent with other comments; These pushy bastards called and were very pushy on the telphone. They wanted an immediate donation via credit card. Initially I indicated willingness to consider BUT only if they sent the information to me. Still pushed for credit card with "excuse" that it is so much cheaper than mail.......
Of course they conveniently forget that credit card usage results in a commission of 3 to 7 percent to the bank. Moreover they kept pushing for online payment until I informed them they had 2 seconds to confirm they would mail the donation request or they could go to hell and I'd hang up.
They did actually send the donation form. On review of the 990 filings, it is clear this is a complete bullshit scam. Virtually NOTHING gets to any so called beneficiaries of the charity. IT ALL goes to salaries and fund-raiser expenses. Contrast that to the Shriners where way less than 5% of all donations funds expenses and the REST goes straight into hospital operations.

I MADE THE MISTAKE OF DONATING ONCE BUT GOT SUSPICIOUS WHEN THEY CALLED BACK ASKING ME WHERE THE MONEY TO FULFILL MY PLEDGE WAS. SO I INVESTIGATED AND FOUND OUT THIS WAS A SCAM RUN BY A DOCTOR WHO MOVED TO FLORIDA THE YEAR AFTER HE STARTED THIS SO CALLED FOUNDATION. TURNS OUT THAT IN THREE YEARS DR YULIUS POPLYANSKY HAS DONATED ONLY 25K FOR MAMMOGRAMS BUT SPENT OVER 6 MILLION DOLLARS ON FUNDRAISING EXPENSES (SUCH AS HIS MOVE TO FLORIDA).
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
CLOSE IT DOWN. IT IS A SCAM SOLELY INTENDED TO LINE THE POCKETS OF DR POPLYANSKY AND HIS FRIENDS.
