I was preparing to send something else to my child today, then I get accosted with yet ANOTHER set of letters and emails telling me that I need to increase my donation, because my child already has so little. I don't need to look up what ChildFund is doing with their money. I already know they are spending WAY too much on fundraising. If you want to join ChildFund, get ready to constantly be hassled about not giving "enough" when you can give "more". I have an elderly family member that is struggling to pay the rent, I think it's time that I stop giving to Childfund, where they are unsatisfied with my $30/month, and give to someone that is grateful for whatever I can afford to give.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
1. Stop making donors feel their contribution is "not enough". 2. Stop lying to donors and making them think that sending small, flat mail will cost $9 or more, when in fact USPS can send these letters for $2-$3. 3. Stop sending so much "emergency" mail to donors, ASK them if they want to receive letters when increased donations are needed, for floods, etc. Some people cannot AFFORD to give more! 4. Use your fundraising money to actually help the programs you sponsor.
