Don't be fooled by this organization and their phone sales pitch! Take a look at the 990 and see where the money is going before contributing. In 2009, they awarded just three grants totaling $43,000 to bonafide US breast cancer services. The remaining $millions went overseas (supposedly) to unnamed organizations or services in Africa and elsewhere. Really? If you care about breast cancer, do yourself (and those suffering with the disease) a favor and support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. But don't take my word for it: Check out their 990 for yourself. Once you familiarize yourself with how it's laid out, it's super easy to read and very informative!

They continue to call even though I've told them to take me off their list. Also, the fundraising company they use is under review or the subject of lawsuits by a number of state attorneys general. See http://neurodiversity.com/weblog/article/197/ for more information. It's a scam - don't donate to this company, unless you want to donate to a fundraiser.

As the Finance Director of a $2 million non-profit, I have prepared over 20 years of Form 990's so I know what to look for. People should think twice about donating to this organization. The 990 is pretty scary. They claim to be a national organization but they list the Exec Dir at $120K. All other salaries total 40K. This is out of a total budget of $15.5 million. However, $7 million of that looks like a pass through of donated medicines that were shipped overseas. Only $145K of the remaining $8.5 million is direct aid to suffering people and research. The rest, or more than $8.2 million is fundraising expenses primarily paid to phone solicitors, etc. The fundraising expense to total expense ratio is way out of line. I could go on and on pointing out issues with their finances, but I'd rather find an organization that does a better job at putting my donations to work to help people with this terrible disease.

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

hire some fundraising staff and stop paying most of the fees to paid solicitors. Hopefully that is the plan and this reliance on paid solicitors is just their strategy for getting started as a new organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

either hire a lot of fundraising consultants, or put the money to good use helping people. Their choice.

Ways to make it better...

I thought they were really helping people.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

credibility . No one wants to see that almost all of their donations are going to fundraising expense

One thing I'd also say is that...

organizations that raise money by tugging at the heart strings need to do great things with the donors' trust.
