Mission: Fugees family, inc. Is devoted to supporting child survivors of war to become independent thinkers and high-achieving scholars. The organization builds upon the power of soccer to galvanize program participants by giving them the support and structure they need to realize their vast potential.
Programs: Soccer, tutoring, and camp programs- approximately 130 children participate in soccer practice, league play, after practice tutoring, and summer camps with literacy instruction. The organization continues to operate an after-school program that includes soccer and tutoring. The organization has five soccer teams and serves over 100 student-athletes. Each summer, the organization operates an academic summer camp, allowing all students at the fugees academy to receive the arts aspect of their curriculum and additional literacy over the summer.
Let me begin by saying that my complaint is not about the worthiness of the work they do. My complaint is about their fundraising practices, specifically their monthly donation program where an amount is taken out of your account each month. I was happy to support this worthwhile organization for the past few years via this easy automatic method. However, when my family needs changed and required that I stop all external donations, they were unable (or unwilling) to stop the monthly withdrawals coming out of my account (3 additional payments so far). I have followed the instructions to email them at the email address listed on each payment notification, but have never even gotten an acknowledgement, let alone a cancellation of my automatic payments. My previous impression of them as a quality charity has definitely changed as a result of their unresponsiveness.
