Foundation For American Veterans calling between 8:00pm and 10:00pm for the past five business days. I will not answer the phone. I 'googled' the firm and discovered their website has been removed and their domain is locked. After reading the other reviews it is clear this organization is not sincere. Scummy, to say the least.

These are not legit fundraisers. I doubt they have a bond or the paperwork needed to do fundraising. I was a bonded commercial fundraiser for years. And we would never use the tactics this company uses. Sounds more like some guys who installed some phones in their basement and made up a charity.

Only 8% of YOUR donation actually goes to a VET!! 8 cents of every dollar you donate. The bulk goes to for profit companies. I received a call soliciting a donation for this organization. After listening to their pitch I agreed to send a donation after I reviewed their Form 990. For 2009 they reported $5.9 Million in grants & contributions (pg 1line 8). They spent $3.2 Million on fundraising to ONE firm (pg 8 section B 1A). That's 54% of their total donations. They spent another $1.7 Million on collectors and billers. OUT OF ALL THAT CASH THEY BROUGHT IN ONLY $500,000 (1/2 a million) WAS ACTUALLY SPENT ON VETS!!!! That's 8% if you are keeping track. Make your own decision; but these guys are NOT getting my support.
