Review for Heifer Project International, Inc., Little Rock, AR, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

I have long admired the work that Heifer does and was happy to contribute after the Haiti earthquake with funds designated for that effort. I began receiving requests for additional donations immediately. I currently receive solicitations via phone, email and US mail at least once per week. This is far too much time and resources spent on fundraising.

Role:  Donor & I will not contribute to Heifer in the future. .

Review for Habitat for Humanity International, Inc., Americus, GA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was happy to contribute to Habitat after the Haiti earthquake. I was not so happy to begin receiving solicitations for donations even before I received a confirmation of my donation. Phone, email and mail solicitations continued on a DAILY basis, including weekends, evenings and weekend evenings. I received as many as 6 phone calls per day.

I question the % spent on fundraising when subsidizing literally thousands of contacts to one person in one year.

Role:  Donor & Called and emailed to have my name removed from solicitation lists. It took approximately 2 months for the phone calls to cease.
