Review for Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., National Office, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I dont understand why this charity received such a high rating here, especially for its financials.

This charity puts itself out there as being "for the cure" yet such a minuscule amount of their expenditures is towards the very research that they claim to be built around that they should receive a 1 star rating here.

Looking at their financial reports, their overhead costs are high and they spend most of their money on education and screening. While those are certainly worthy things, they are not "for the cure".

This charity is not sufficiently transparent with it's donors about how the money is spent. If you were to ask a dozen participants in a "Race for the Cure" event, why they were participating, few would point to funding education programs. They'd point to funding research, which is no longer a priority for this charity.
