The anonymous “Rosewater” makes some reckless accusations about the management of Heal the Bay in the post above. I’m not sure what Charity Navigator’s process is for vetting baseless claims from a disgruntled ex-employee before publishing them. But, as chairman of its board and a long-serving volunteer, I can personally vouch that Heal the Bay operates in the most ethical and fiscally responsible way possible. Hard-working staff and thousands of passionate volunteers have been the lifeblood of the organization, with many of them working with us for decades. They are appreciated, valued and respected. Our 27-year history of community support and environmental progress speaks for itself.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
