Be aware that the paperwork they send out lists Topeka, KS as their address and FCF as their acronym which can be confusing based on the information from Charity Navigator. I had to do more research on the internet to determine that it was the same organization. Read the fine print on the back of the donor form and it will mention the NY address.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I haven't.

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

spend a lot less on fundraising and more on actually helping people.
