There is about to be a large investigation into this foundation. For money laundering and abuse, since 1970. Do not donate and stay clear of this scam on the people.

The director of this organization has no interest in philanthropy or serving the needs of the less fortunate in the community. He lives very comfortably off the naive community. He puts on three events each year for children/adults with disabilities. However, he will send out tickets to the facilities just before the event so that it becomes an UN-vitation. His shows cost a couple hundred dollars to put on and only a few kids attend. The director has been in trouble with the IRS for many years for refusing to pay Uncle Sam while he is Uncle Scam. DO NOT give to this charity. It is a complete rip-off!!!

This is one of those charities that look's good on paper but dont be fooled. The director John Baruth portrays himself as a pastor, but really he is a major con artist. The bare minimum is given to a few select charities and the majority of the money he keeps himself. He sells tickets to at least three events a year. (Extravaganga Foundation Show, American Family Foundation show, American family circus) He solitites the same people oven and over and there is a scarce amount of handicapped kids that attend. Do your homework before giving to this charity, the finacials will never be disclosed. I have given to this charity for years, but they will never get a dime from me again.
