Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

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.
