My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Short Bowel Syndrome Foundation, Inc., Lincoln, NE, USA
The guy that runs the admin page for SBSF on Facebook is the same guy that runs SBSF, I can tell by the pics he posts. He look's weird, and he gets a little too close to some of the kids he hangs out with by the looks of those pictures, if you know what I mean.?.?.. 1 star because more than likely this non-profit is a burnt out charity for the individual who maintains the "legitimacy" of the non-profit. They start a nonprofit, help a group they can relate to for a month, maybe a year to keep up the image, then they start pocketing all donations. If it's a non-profit, how is it his JOB according to his Facebook????? He pays himself with donations to the non-profit. I analyze non-profits for a living, and unless the non-profit is constantly growing at a significant pace, then chances are good that any donations made will go straight to whomever runs the non-profit. Once a non-profit stops growing, or becomes "dead", the founder has invested too much at that point, and now relies on donations personally. I have seen non-profits that look like a fortune 500 corporate empire on social media, and at the same time is being upheld by someone living in a garage with dirt floor via am old Motorla flip phone, it's all a sham. I'm not saying that's the case with SBSF, but I will say that in my experience of analyzing such non-profits, and I dont see any other recent evidence that would suggest otherwise, it certainly wouldn't be surprising!!!!!
