Review for The Wayne Foundation Inc, Englewood, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This organization has no measurable results, except selling t-shirts and promoting its founder, a former lingerie model. Do not under any circumstances give money to the Wayne Foundation. They have no annual reports. They do not file required reports with the IRS. They only sell cheap trinkets and try to get interviews in an effort to prove their worthiness. Interviews in 2012? Probably 30. Victims served? 0.

No

These are legitimate concerns that we are happy to answer. The Wayne Foundation has filed 990 forms with the IRS for years 2010, 2011. In addition, the financial records for 2011 have been reviewed by an auditor. This information can be found on our website http://waynefdn.org/about. As any NPO can tell you, the charity division of the IRS has a backlog of 6-12 months. Though the 990 forms have not yet been uploaded to guidestar.org, they in fact were filed in compliance with 501(c)(3) regulation. As far as our accomplishments, TWF has done substantial work with what little man power we have. In 2012, Mrs. Walton was asked by Sen. Daylin Leach of PA to help with Senate Bill 338, posting of the NHTRC hotline. With Mrs. Walton's assistance, this bill was passed and signed by the governor of PA in Oct 2012. Sen. Leach was so impressed with our impact that he has invited Jamie to address the state legislature in 2013 for Senate Bill 885, which would expunge the records of sexual trafficking victims. In addition, Jamie also presents lectures about human trafficking issues. In Sept she was invited to be the key note speaker for Mental Health America (Montana). She addressed the conference about childhood trauma, and the positive affects of mental health care. For more information, we suggest you look at our news section. http://waynefdn.org/archives/category/news As far as funds raised, all money goes towards building a rehabilitation facility for DMST victims. This is a multimillion dollar project, that will take many years to complete. Our main mission is to spread awareness of sexual trafficking occurring within the United States. Jamie's story has been heard by millions of people around the world. Her advocacy has informed the public about this grave injustice occurring in our country. Admittedly, no victims are being assisted by TWF itself, but we are partnered with many non profits who are already operational. Just last week, TWF donated $200 worth of pajamas to GEMS Girls Christmas fund. These PJs went directly DMST survivors currently in rehabilitation as gifts. Additionally, TWF refers victims to organizations in their area that are able to provide services. This is a lot of information. I hope you have found it helpful, as you seem to be not very well informed about our work.
