SPECIAL OLYMPICS NEW YORK INC
September 1, 2012

After receiving yet another request from the organization for a donation, I again checked their ratings on Charity Navigator, which gives the Schenectady, NY branch a 2 star overall rating. I found it extremely interesting that their web site cites a 4 star rating, with a link to the Charity Navigator site, which shows the 4 star rating for the Washington, DC branch. This is very misleading and should be addressed with the organization. While I respect the work that Special Olympics does, I will not donate until my local branch improves their ratings. I am contacting them directly, advising them to remove my name from their mailing list.
