Review for DEFEAT DIABETES FOUNDATION INC, Madeira Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was contacted twice by this organization, raising funds for their education programs on diabetes. Two different fundraising persons told me that 100% of all donations went to the programs of raising diabetes awareness and treatment. Apparently that is not the case according to the review contained on Charity Navigator that lists:

Program Expenses 11.8%

Administrative Expenses 6.7%

Fundraising Expenses at 81.4% This would appear to me to be a fraudulant organization, when they grossly misrepresent the allocation of funds to potential donors. After reading this review, I did not send in my donation.
