Review from CharityNavigator

I worked as a professional fundraiser for CCFS and let me try to explain how this works. First we contact you for a childhood charity (this is what is called cold calling). Once you make a donation your name became part of the companies list, which gave us the okay to call you again on behalf of other charities such as Children's Cancer Fund of America. These calls usually came just a couple of weeks after your donation was received. Then a few weeks later we'd be calling you again on behalf of another organization, and then another and another. After that...we'd be calling you again to renew your pledge, which is usually every three months. So all in all, your kind hardheartedness bought you a boat load of calls. As callers we had no way of knowing when your donation was last made and as for me, I lost sleep over the harassment that we were causing you, the donor.
It seemed to most of us in the office that some of these charities were fraudulent but when you need a job, you need a job.
As for asking to be removed from our calling list...as callers we did click the remove button on the computer, but once we moved on to the next call we had no idea what took place. There are thousands of people I talked to over the course of the last two years that demanded to be removed, only to be contacted by us again and again.
If you feel that you have been harassed, please contact the attorney general in your state to find out what you can do.
While I was a caller we called CA MN and MI
