Charities Deceive Donors Unaware Money Goes to a Telemarketer by David Evans,
Bloomberg, Sept. 12, 2012.
One brief quote from this outstanding investigative report:
“And it gets worse. Many of the biggest-name charities in the U.S. have signed similarly one-sided contracts with telemarketers during the past decade. The American Cancer Society, the largest health charity in the U.S., enlisted InfoCision from 1999 to 2011 to raise money.
In fiscal 2010, InfoCision gathered $5.3 million for the society. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers took part, but none of that money -- not one penny -- went to fund cancer research or help patients, according to the society’s filing with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the state of Maine.“
The local trash sheet ABH promoted this fraudulent organization. You can bet they won't mention this article disclosing the fraudulent activities of the American Cancer Society. Neither will UGA or the YMCA where recent relays have been held. Volunteers in Athens love to be fooled by propaganda and lies.
