Review for Muscular Dystrophy Association, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The management and promotion of MDA is too top heavy in administrative and fundraising costs and has implemented changes too drastically over the past four years, abandoning it's long time base in the hope of becoming more appealing to the Facebook and Twitter market. Turning a philanthropic icon like Jerry Lewis into a villain and putting him out to pasture betrayed the mission of MDA to give the disabled dignity and opportunity. Public trust has been lost. The lack of transitional planning has reduced income and increased expenses and many local branches are failing. Finally, MDA does not address the charges of exploitation brought by Jerry's orphans.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
