I personally know the founder of this "charitable" foundation and have known him intimately for a long period of time. I know of very little charitable contributions this entity has made. This foundation exists solely as a front to hide money of its founder, escape taxes on that money and a way to fund his lavish lifestyle after his bankruptcy discharge in 2008. The founder has a long history of conning and defrauding individuals and financial institutions and has set up this foundation in a manner to be able to do so from multiple entities and continue his own personal gain. He may donate a few hundred dollars here and there but nothing beyond that. And only as a way to garner the guise of respectability as he further promotes other of his financial schemes. Be very wary.
This nonprofit has been reported by several sources to be a front used by the founder to hide income from another business the founder operates and is engaged in only minimal charitable efforts in order to maintain the appearance of being a charity. All donations and income to the nonprofit are not used as the founder claims. Please be advised that charitable donations by the public will be used more effectively for genuine philanthropy and rebuilding efforts through other foundations operating in the same region.
