I volunteered for this organization in 2011 & 2012 in Sandy Valley. After a great deal of monetary donation, material donations and labor, I came to realize that the foundation was simply a fundraising ploy for personal projects and the donations were poorly recorded. Additionally, many projects and improvements were made against the wishes of the valley residents. One particular insult is that the membership is comprised of anyone who attends the meetings. Subsequently, anytime money is asked for or a project proposed, the word is put out to those in favor so that they would gather their friends for that meeting, guaranteeing the vote be passed. Since the foundation is run by the local Justice of the Peace the actions and decisions of the board are predetermined and do not represent the community. Nor are they ever questioned for fear of reprisal.
