Review for Project Open Hand, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GIVE MONEY TO THIS ORGANIZATION!!! Our company supplied produce to Project Open Hand for many years. After I bought the company, it came to my attention that the chef at Project Open Hand had been hitting my company up for bribes for years. I went directly to the President of the organization, Tom Nolan. Not only did he not deem it worth his time to meet with us in person (even though we are talking hundreds of thousands of dollars annually), he sent a few lower level people to our office, proceeding to interrogate and attempting to humiliate and discredit our employee. He concluded his "investigation" by white washing the incident and kept the person responsible for the bribery employed! Considering Tom Nolan is a leader in the community, on several boards and gets paid several hundred thousand dollars a year, I find this whole episode appalling. The people I feel the worst for are those who give their hard earned money to the organization. Please know that some of that money goes to supporting Tom's large salary and the bribery that is rampant in the organization.
