Cure Cancer Now
Review for American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities, Inc., Memphis, TN, USA
ALSAC spends so much of the money it collects for children with cancer that it is no longer a reputable charity. When you give a gift of any amount to this charity, over 20% of your gift is spent on things that have nothing to do with childhood cancer. Last year, the charity’s rate of growth in expenses outpaced its rate of growth in revenue. Yet, the CEO of the charity nearly DOUBLED his own salary from the previous year. This charity would have you believe it desperately needs your money “to keep the hospital’s doors open”, yet it reports that it has over $2.5 BILLION in net assets on hand today.
There are some good cancer charities out there – ALSAC’s just not one of them.
