My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Wellesley, MA, USA
Your rating for transparency is shocking and uninformed. This inept and dishonest organization has had about 6 directors in seven years. Their tenure marked malfeasance and incompetence. The Board has always been in the dark. One director, Bob Feige was jailed by the Attorney General for absconding with workers comp funds. The Bored Board had to hire forensic accountants to discover they were broke. Mass Hort did not pay its vendors or labor.For at least 7 years, Mass Hort has been engaged in a life or death struggle for control of its site - The Elm Bank, a distressed property under its management. They lost the court cases, and now claim that they are "crippled" because they can not run the for-profit affairs they need to "do horticulture" and/or fulfill the requirements of their site lease. During all the years of litigation, they have never informed their membership of the ongoing lawsuit. How's that for "transparency?; " continuing to take funds from the public under a false light. I would suggest your reviewing this organization with a better eye.
