Review for American Cancer Society Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I have volunteered for over ten years at the ACS Relay For Life annual fundraising event. It is, I believe, the best, most efficient fundraiser you will find. Unfortunately we discovered last year that the top executive of the American Cancer Society is getting 2.5 million dollars in compensation. The figures come from the IRS form 990 filed by ACS. That is way too much for an organization that prides itself on being volunteer based. Further investigation showed that there has been a pattern of this behavior, not just one incident.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am a two time cancer survivor.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire the CEO and the Chief Medical Officer. Pay the replacements a modest salary.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
