Breast Cancer Prevention Fund
April 17, 2011

I was telephonically contacted by a Breast Cancer Prevention Fund Fund-raising Coordinator in April 2011. I was asked to donate on behalf of women that could not afford mammograms. Before I donate, I always research an organization. This is what I found through the IRS and the Breast Cancer Prevention Fund's 2009, Form 990 submission:
2009 Donations: $3.3 million;
Paid out for mammograms: $660,000 (less than 20%);
Paid to Legacy Telemarketing (a subcontractor): $2.2 million
James Patton is on the BCPF's Board of Directors and is President of Legacy Telemarketing.
