I previously donated to this organization but this year decided to do some research before answering calls for donations. My research determined that nearly 95% of the money donated goes towards corporate salaries, commissions and administrative costs. I have stopped donating to them but they continue to call me 8-10 times per day. Additionally, it appears that the company operating the Childrens Cancer Fund of America also runs several other funds, each calling me for donations. This company sells your information to others and will not stop calling. I recommend that no one contribute to this organization but research companies like the American Cancer Society and other reputable organizations where your money will be used for something other than CEO payouts.
