Review for Save the Frogs!, Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

save the frogs is a greenwashing pseudo-charity that it's CEO uses to fund his day-day life. Technically, the 'charity' does little, if any, actual preservation work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

its clear abuse of non-profit status and funding

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

Replace its CEO/Founder with someone with integrity

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Nothing,. I am greatly disillusioned in knowing that there are people like this abusing funding

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unseemly and disingenuous

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do some good, but the CEO would VERY likely squander it maintaining on his personal life

Ways to make it better...

savethefrogs.com actually made any effort toward real conservation. Instead, the CEO uses donated money to pay his personal day-day expenses, and his time and the group's appeal to meet women.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

continuing to operate this enterprise

One thing I'd also say is that...

Non-profits like this, I would hope, are an exception, but all potential donors should seriously look at the financial before considering donating to it

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Investigated numerous claims regarding this enterprise.

This is complete nonsense. The Founder of SAVE THE FROGS! worked full-time unpaid the first 18 months of SAVE THE FROGS!, and there is no basis in any of the personal allegations, which were clearly written by somebody with a hidden agenda. The multitude of SAVE THE FROGS! accomplishments can be seen at http://savethefrogs.com/what-we-do/2009.html and throughout http://savethefrogs.com
