AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER FOUNDATION INC
June 3, 2013

I can't even begin to tell you how disenchanted I am to find out the truth about ASDF. This is the 2nd year I've volunteered to canvas for donations. I was checking with one neighbor today who donated last year and he told me about an article in the AARP magazine about this very organization that stated that 60% of the funds donated go toward expenses. That's a huge chunk of change for those so-called do-gooder Board Members getting paid to coordinate this dysfunctional effort. Needless to say, I will not be doing this again next year. They called and called and called this year until I was so tired of not answering the phone that I finally picked it up and agreed to do this again just to get them to stop calling me. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. I will send in the donations I have collected because I collected them in good faith assuming that the majority of the donation was going directly to the cause. At least my conscience won't bother me.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Abolish this cost inefficient organization and go work for a legitimate charity where the majority of the proceeds go directly to those who are directly affected by this disorder.
