This charity is working for a great cause, but I am concerned about the amount of money being spent on fundraising efforts. I am sent some type of desperate-plea fundraising letter at least once a week, and it is off-putting. I wish they would limit those letters to 3 - 4 times a year, and spend the money saved on their operating expenses. Also, I am concerned about a lawsuit that they are fighting. Will my donation be going toward fighting that, or do they have a lawyer working for them pro bono? I wish they would address that topic in one of the frequent letters they send out.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Enlist the help of local schools to generate awareness, gain volunteers, and build support in the local community. I would also limit fundraising letters to current donors to 3 - 4 times a year.
