Review for Pride Foundation, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The Pride Foundation is wasteful and dishonest. First, it wrongly categorizes what should be development/fundraising expenses as program expenses. Further, and more important, it has a history of stealing endowments and not giving first priority to donors' intentions. In one example, it has stolen $500,000+ of an organization's endowment.

The Pride Foundation markets itself as an efficient re-granter. However, it is not. Donors should NOT give to Pride, believing it will be a good pass-through organization for their gifts. Instead, give to an organization directly--the organization will get more of your money, and you won't be paying for the management and administration of an intermediary.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I have volunteered with Pride, and have witnessed their activities.
