FOUNDATION FOR AMERICAN VETERANS
February 14, 2013

I, like other reviewers, felt compelled to check on this group as they had been rather adamant about my paying by credit card which, I explained, I never do in response to phone solicitations. I was so disappointed to see that they give so little to the veterans and keep such a huge amount for "administative costs." Most of us want to support the veterans coming home from serving our country. To have these leeches taking advantage of us is intolerable. I sent my "pledged" amount to the Wounded Warriors effort instead. Now this Foundation bunch has called asking for their money, and I told them what I just told you. Today, I received another solicitation in the mail intimating that I have forgotten. With all the new legislation being passed in DC, why can't they include a law that bans a non-profit from keeping more than (40%) for themselves?
