Review for DrumsForCures :: drumSTRONG, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

drumSTRONG is a great idea executed by someone with no managerial or business experience. Other than companies owned or funded by his Dad, Scott has no idea what he's doing in trying to run an organization like this. His trademark is unprotected, his financials are perpetually late. And worst of all, less than 10% of the money raised at the annual drumstrong event even counts as profit for distribution to those organizations which drumstrong is chartered to help. In short, this is an organization with declining support, declining revenue, declining impact, and badly in need of an Executive Director with a clue about what he's doing.

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

Their finanancials on this site, and they suck.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the passion and energy is definitely there.

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

Kind of hippie-types, who seem to enjoy the groove but know pretty much as little about business as Scott.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Find a way to spend $11 million bucks.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

This review is riddled with animosity and inaccuracies.

Among them ::

The % of funds disbursed through our drumSTRONG efforts supporting important cancer initiatives. Revenue is raised by and for participating organizations. 90% to 100% of those funds are donated to their causes.

Our board includes respected certified counselors and internationally recognized directors of oncology services.

Our staff includes many from successful professional organizations and are 100% volunteers (with good hearts).

Jeff Gregory (jagbcl reviewer) was paid to file for the Trademark registration.

Financials are in order.

drumSTRONG is gaining global momentum daily. We accept and appreciate assistance from competent, giving folks. Yes, an Executive Director would be welcomed.
