My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA
The WWP has become very much like the Pink Ribbon Campaign, very little money actually makes it to the very people they claim to be helping. It has become a corporation operating as a 501c3. I personally know far too many veterans that simply need cold hard cash, whether it is to make the rent, get their car repaired, or get caught up on their utilities. The stress of not being able to meet their basic needs adds to their PTSD and physical disabilities more of a struggle. Many are stuck while waiting for the ratings to go through, meanwhile they go further and further into debt. It is a downward spiral that is difficult to get out of.
Very few organizations out there help w/the veterans financial needs, that is where I want to see my donation go, not for clothing to advertize, rubber arm bands that no one wears, magnets, watching the big wigs schmooze wining and dining while using our veterans as a prop. Nothing makes me angrier than to see our guys being patronized for the sake of a dollar. It wasn't until I got into the non-profit world did I see how much money is wasted by so many charities. I do not begrudge anyone a salary, but $300 grand is excessive. I simply do not like this organization or the people that I have encountered that work with it.
