I got a call from the Associated Community Services www.associatedcommunityservices.com and was asked to donate $20 to the Breast Cancer Society. www.breastcancersociety.org. I asked what there ratio of money goes to the society. They told me 80% goes to them to hired the phone operators etc. and 20% goes to the Breast Cancer Society. In my mind that Ratio is unacceptable and not sustainable. The Breast Cancer Society has administration costs so very little of my donation is helping a low income women with breast cancer. I found the operator to be aggressive and reading from a script. I don't believe this is a SCAM but it's definitely not an organization I would recommend anyone to donate any money to. There are much better organizations that will put more money to work than the Breast Cancer Society. Also I would recomend that any and all NFPs avoid Assocated Community Services.
