Review for American Institute for Cancer Research, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This organization uses the telephone for soliciting donations in an unscrupulous manner. My mother-in-law receives daily calls from theam (different numbers, but registered to AICR). When she answers, there is no one on the line. I did some research on the Internet to find out who was calling her, as she is elderly, and it really spooks her to get these calls. It was easy to find the answer on the Internet, because, it seems, the experience is widespread. My mother-in-law is on the "do not call list," by the way. That is a really bad use of money for a charitable organization- repeatedly calling people on the "do not call list" to get money from them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

discourteous in using the telephone.

Ways to make it better...

They would not call people on the "do not call list."

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  General Member of the Public & We received repeated unsolicited calls from AICR.
