Cancer Recovery Foundation of America
February 5, 2013

A telemarketing company (Associate Community Services) called today asking for a donation for this charity. As a non-profit professional, I know the questions to ask and was transferred to a 'supervisor' who confirmed that only 15% of the donations goes to the charity while 85% is kept by the telemarketing company. The Charity's 2011 tax filings show that the telemarketing firms/fundraisers collected over $4million in donations and kept nearly $3million of it. Those are TERRIBLE rates!!! There are much more effective, responsible charities to donate to where more of your donation goes to the charitable cause. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that this charity is more than a bit shady.
