My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Fellowship Of Christians & Jews, Chicago, IL, USA
This organization has often been in question in my mind at times. I believe in giving to the Jewish people ( And I have given to IFCJ) who are in need. Or ANY of Gods children, Jewish or not. Now that I know just how much they are pocketing for themselves, it changes my perspective on how they conduct their business. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that they ARE helping many people! But who REALLY needs more than 2 or 3 hundred thousand dollars per year to live comfortaby? Why not give back some of the income that they are choosing to keep and put it back into the "Non-Profit" or any other legit organization helping people. What does "Non-Profit" REALLY mean if these people are making this kind of money? God doesn't want us to judge, I agree, but there has to be some kind of logic in making a decision to give to an organization or not. Judging is one thing but making a conscious determination that an organization is taking advantage of well meaning funds is a totally different story. And clearly, making that much money and pocketing it instead of utilizing it for bettering other people's lives is wrong! I don't care how hard you work at helping people, getting compensated justly is the right way to do it. This is not. If I'm giviing to a "non-profit" in good faith, when I don't make a fraction of what these people are making for a living, I call that wrong!!! I work hard too! I'll give when I see their incomes from this "non-profit" signficantly reduce. That's my story!
