Review for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I am a former donor. The amount of unsolicited literature sent, be it free cards, calendars, address labels, etc is overwhelming and bad enough. But their incessant calling on a daily basis under various guises/caller ID's---which I refuse to answer---makes me NEVER want to donate a penny to them again. They did the same thing last year in December and I finally answered the phone to tell them that I would not pledge any money to their association over the phone, that I should be contacted once/year by mail only, in the month of December and only then, would I consider giving again. They obviously didn't listen and don't care. Their constant phone calling borders on harassment. If this is indicative of their core principles and fundraising strategy, they don't deserve contributions.
