Review for Southern Poverty Law Center, Inc., Montgomery, AL, USA
The fundraising practices of Southern Poverty Law Center are disrespectful and disingenuous. While I believe in the work they do, I have asked to be removed from their mailing list due to their aggressively rude practices (such as asking me for donations after I just made one). Despite 10 YEARS of asking to be removed from their lists,I am still receiving appeals asking for money. Not newsletters or substantive program pieces; just more requests for money. As a fundraiser myself, I find this to be a completely disrespectful way to handle donors. When someone asks you to take them off your list, you should respect that donor's wishes. Period. For an organization so large, they should be able to handle the small detail of a mailing list update, especially after multiple requests. Just goes to show they don't actually care about their donors. I give my money elsewhere, where the organization actually notices.
