My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc, New York, NY, USA
I originally joined this organization hoping to have a resource for my generation of combat veteran much like the VVA. Unfortunately I found an organization more interested in counting me as a number on their roster and less about providing any sort of unique support. Outside of lobbying on Capitol Hill I saw no tangible efforts to provide services to veterans that were not being offered already, and more effectively, by other organizations.
After repeated attempts to have my name and contact information deleted from their records I am still being contacted and can only assume being inaccurately counted among their membership. This correspondence has been in the form of asking for donations that will support "programs" to help veterans without any mention of said program or what exactly is being done.
I also believe the way in witch they have framed their legislative accomplishments has been misleading. I was inundated with messages about how "IAVA did this" or "IAVA accomplished that" as if they were the only voice on the hill and other VNGO's such as the American Legion, VFW, VVA, and DVA were not involved.
I give the IAVA one star and questions their administrative practices and over all organization.
