SCAM ALERT!! DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE PHONY REVIEWS SUBMITTED BY BCPF - THIS IS NOT A WORTHY CHARITY!

I received a phone solication from them asking me to donate money for free mammograms. I did my homework and found that in 2009 BCPF took in $3.6M in donations but only gave out $0.6M in grants. The other $3M was paid to Legacy Telemarketing which is owned by BCPF's director James Paton - a bigger conflict of interest I can't imagine!

To make matters worse, BCPF does not divulge how much money he receives from the contract but it when you do the math you can see it's in the neighborhood of $1M a year! Shame on him for pocketing donation money that should be saving lives by providing tens of thousands of free mammograms!

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

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

Remove BCPF director James Paton and terminate telemarketing contract. Give all of the donation money to mammogram providers instead of 15%
