The telemarketer told me her group used to campaign the candle fundraiser for the Marine Corps, which I used to donate to. She talked some smack on whoever runs the Marine Corps nonprofit for no longer using her telemarketing services and asked me to buy a candle from Mission of Hope instead. I declined and am glad I did after reading other comments from people who have checked Mission of Hope's tax forms and have found out that very little money goes to actually help people in need.

Been a donor for the past three years. This time for the first time, I actually looked into the organization to see where my $25 went to. They told me that it went to the 300 patients that needed financial support to continue with their cancer therapy. I downloaded their Form 990, which is their tax return, and found out in 2012 that they had 670k worth of donations, and 470k (70%) went to fundraising costs (???), and 140k went to "other" expenses (21%), and salaries were 40k (6%) leaving only $17,666 of excess donations. Not an accountant, but this organization looks like it runs for the benefit of the fundraisers, (Ronald F. Doddy & Associates, of Essexville, Michigan ($469,797). Disappointing, won't contribute ever again.
