Management Corp. - sent me the mailing package. One of the items in the mailing was a card that identified the states that required notification to potential donors about the financial results related to the charity and the professional fundraiser associated with it. On the Vermont attorney general's site I found very disturbing information about this particular professional fundraiser. In many cases - for many well known charitable organizations - this fundraiser returned to the charity less than 50% of the money that individuals had donated. I have decided not to proceed with the solicitations to my neighbors.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
urge it to not use its current Professional Fundraiser.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
Use direct solicitation.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
left me skeptical of professional fundraising orgs. and charities that use them.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
