I also received information about this organization while at the Jacksonville Airport. I made a donation on the anniversary of my husband's retirement from the USMC. Veterans charities are especially important in my household since my husband is a veteran having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I have not had any issues with my name being sold to other companies, I have received address labels, etc. but not an excessive amount. Yes, they do not have a WRITTEN privacy policy, but if you call them and ask to be taken off their mailing list, I'm sure they'd be more than happy to do so or be able to explain what their policy does entail. In my opinion, the person "Laura" that posted a review previously doesn't appear to be very Internet savvy and thinks a Nigerian Bank scheme solicitation is coming from the Wounded Warrior Project, which of course is not. Generals have more important things to attend to than soliciting donations for a charity. Unfortunately, I did not see a "No" button for "Was this review helpful?" in response to Laura Smith's comments which prompted me to write a review.

While in the Jacksonville, FL airport last fall I saw the rocking chairs of the Wounded Warrior Project and picked up information. Thinking our service people need support and assistance from all Americans I included the WWP in my year end giving for which I received acknowledgment. However, they have more than spent my donation in mailings during 2011 asking for more money, and unfortunately I did not know about their LACK of donor privacy assurances. I have been BESEIGED with requests from more than the usual veterans' charities (the ones that keep sending me return address labels that lshould last through my grandchildren's lives). In particular, requests come weekly from a General Singlaub - I am sure these are sent under his name for a worthy cause, but I will not be sending the WWP any more donations and will be checking Charity Navigator more closely in the future. I think the administrative and fund raising efforts far exceed those of a well run charity.
