Review for YWCA USA, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The YWCA is one of the most corrupt and ineffective nonprofits in the country. I honestly do not understand how they are able to maintain tax-exempt status based on their major failings in their financial disclosures as well as their track record (or lack thereof) of doing work to support their mission combined with an absence of transparency. Not only do they have one of the highest paid CEOs despite pathetically low ratings in other areas, they have also run a spending deficit of over one hundred percent each of the last three years (which is a far back as the IRS maintains records). Most shocking, the YWCA only devotes a little over 30% of funds to programs and services, which many would consider fraudulent considering their staff falsely paints a much different picture. How do they continue to operate?! Bottom line, if you are looking for a reputable nonprofit to donate, volunteer, or get involved in any way to make a difference...LOOK ELSEWHERE
