My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Heifer Project International, Inc., Little Rock, AR, USA
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.
Review for Habitat for Humanity International, Inc., Americus, GA, USA
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.
