I am dismayed by the small percentage of donations that go to the programs. If you go to their website, they claim that they spend 84% of their budget on programs . Either that's an outright misstatement or they haven't been checked out by CN lately. My cut-off is 75%, so these people are off my list. Also, staff is too highly paid for a non-profit.
Last year I made the mistake of allowing them to charge an automatic payment against my credit card. In January this year, I called to have that arrangement cancelled, and, in fact, it did not appear on my February statement. But it just appeared on my March statement. Of course, I will have to make another call and have my credit card company disallow this payment. I don't need this.

In the past few months, SBK has quietly de-funded Planned Parenthood's breast cancer screening activities. This decision involved a number of political moves meant to serve the interests of anti-choice groups. Google Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to read about the how the decision was made and by whom.
