I completely agree with all the foregoing negative reviews. The small print ("NCRC Facts") on the back of their pink Annual Fund Drive Voluntary Reply Form shows that 62.32% pf their income went to fundraising! 28.75% went to "public education in conjunction with fundraising appeals". The whole thing sounds like a non-profit was set up to raise money to pay certain individuals for doing what?? From many things I have seen, the government makes it way too easy for so-called non-profits such as this to be set up for monetary gain without paying taxes, with no benefit to the public.

I have not been a donor or volunteer (and certainly will never be), but the "Your role" box does not have an option for people receiving solicitations in the mail.

This was the note I returned in their pretty pink envelope: I am appalled by your appeal to raise funds for an organization that does little except pay “President” Helen Marie Walker and the fund-raisers themselves. Your charity rating is ONE star. Your accountability and transparency is likewise despicable.
How shameful that you would ask for money from people at a time like this, knowing that sending it to several other breast cancer centers would actually save lives.
I would ask to be removed from your mailing list, but I think not. I’ll follow the ‘progress’ of your organization from the sidelines, and perhaps do some ‘public educating’ of my own.

A very disappointed and yes, even angry, non-supporter!
