Review for INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIANS & JEWS, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I handle my 87 year-old mother's financial affairs, and saw that she was persuaded to donate to this organization through her credit card. When I told her that the president was paid nearly a half-million dollars in 2010 (the most recent year reported), she was outraged, and felt taken advantage of. I called the organization and asked to have the funds credited back to her credit card and they refused, saying that contributions were non-refundable unless the donor was legally incompetent at the time. I believe that every legitimate charity should return gifts made by people who within a reasonable amount of time reconsider after receiving pertinent information about the charity. The fact that this organization will require me to take them to small-claims court to get my mother's money back tells me a lot about just what sort of outfit they are.
