Review for Grey2k Usa, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Rosie - My guess is that they requested an extension in order to arrange their finances so they don't look like crooks. People are beginning to realize that they're operating a sham charity, therefore donations in 2013 were likely down. If they didn't take a reduction in salary, that could send up a red flag for the IRS, and I'm sure they do not want to be audited.

This is complete nonsense, "rxallen." Donations in 2012 were up, and we are releasing our 990 this year at the same time we have in previous years.

Review for Grey2k Usa Education Fund, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I find it very interesting that any time someone has a negative review of this group, Carey2 chimes in that the review is not based on facts, and is part of some sort of "conspiracy" by "dog racing supporters". Keep in mind that Carey's two "non-profits" (Grey2k USA Education Fund / Grey2k USA), rake in several hundred thousand dollars per year. Carey and his wife, Christine Dorchak, take a very large percentage of that money as their personal income. Less than 2% of donations benefit greyhounds. If you want to help greyhounds, donate directly to an adoption group (Greyhounds Pets of America is preferred).

Without question, there is a cynical effort underway by greyhound breeders to post negative false reviews on this site. Dog racing supporters like "rxallen" (who has no activity on this site other than this one false review) are coordinating with each other and posting false statements. For example, here is a message posted on Facebook last month, in which a greyhound breeder asked others to post negative information about our work on GreatNonprofits: http://www.grey2kusa.org/images/Cynical_effort_by_greyhound_breeders_to_post_false_reviews.png Like the other messages posted by dog racing supporters, your "review" contains all sorts of false statements. Specifically, the claim that "less than 2%" of donations benefit greyhounds" is nonsense, and the suggestion that our employees receive a percentage of all donations is completely untrue. In reality, the GREY2K USA Education Fund is an all-volunteer organization.
