My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Chancellor Volunteer Fire Dept, Fredericksburg, VA, USA
Reported publicly in November 2011, CVFR failed the local audit by the Miller-Foley Group of Federal, state and local public funding, documentation and expenditures for FY 2010. CVFR failed the state audit by the Virginia Office of Charitable Gaming of bingo gaming revenue gross receipts, documentation and expenditures for TY 2010. Even though CVFR failed both financial audits in FY 2011 and reduced public safety services by 25%, Spotsylvania County still provided CVFR with a 35% budget increase for that fiscal year. In FY 2012, CVFR further reduced public safety services by as much as 80% over FY 2010 values, Spotsylvania County still provided CVFR with a 22% budget increase that fiscal year.
There are substantial discrepancies with and unaccounted Federal funding and expenditures between the Spotsylvania County Government and the internal operations and management of CVFR, all centering around the Federal SAFER funds and the Revenue Recovery Program funds obtained through the billing of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances.
Where is this unaccounted for Federal, state and local public funding expended if not on program services in compliance with its tax exempt mission? Why do select Spotsylvania officials provide continual political protection for this 501c3 tax exempt public organization that fails to provide for the public safety? Why are the internal affairs of CVFR maintained in secrecy with the assistance of select Spotsylvania officials?

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
CVFR failures directly contributed to the tragic and preventable death of a local civilian.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Remove the Executive Director Kevin Dillard, Beth Addington, Richard Cantillon, Daniel Butler, Nathan Johnson, Janice Tate, Hollie Williams and Kerry Powell. They have all participated in substantial violations of Federal and state statues. Senior officers engage in criminal misconduct with women, minors and children: UPDATE: charge at one Spotsylvania firehouse leads to arrest, Peggy Fox, WUSA9.com - http://www.wusa9.com/video/brightcove.aspx?bctid=111960873001
