I donated over the phone. Within 3 weeks I received so many letters from charities asking for a donation.Some of these I had never heard of- Within a month it got so bad that I started writing them down- then I got fed up and threw the letters away.The next donation card from this org came in the mail- I replied with a note that i will contact my states Attorney Generals office if I ever got a letter or phone call from them again- They apparently sold/gave my address to numerous charities.Based on other reviews- I would stay away.

I made a donation to the Breast Cancer Survivors Foundation in honor of a friend and breast cancer survivor. My 2 star rating is not based on the effectiveness of the organization as I've not seen anything other than their website. My low rating is based on the fact that after making the donation, we started receiving 2 to 5 calls a day from different non-profit organizations. Apparently, in addition to our cash donation, they made a little extra by selling our information to other organizations. If they didn't sell it, I am still very disappointed that they shared it. Now we have to screen all of our calls.

Note: The address I have for the organization is based in New Jersey and not Oregon, but it is the exact same name. The website of the organization I donated to is http://www.breastcancersurvivor.org (w w w dot breastcancersurvivor dot org) - I apologize if this is not the same organization and will promptly remove this review if so.
