    Disabled Veterans Scam

    These guys raised over 64 million dollars over 3 years and not one penny has actually gone to help veterans. I saw this on CNN.

    They get donations like candy and shoes and other things, but NO MONEY .

    DISGUSTING!!!!!

    Re: Disabled Veterans Scam

    The organization says its mission is to help underserved veterans -- those suffering from PTSD, brain injuries and battling homelessness - and to collaborate with likeminded nonprofits, but it appears to have been concentrating its efforts on paying for fundraising services and doling out cheap giveaways. But according to CNN, the nonprofit has used most of its donor dollars to pay Quadriga Art LLC, which helps the organization with its fundraising efforts.
    "Up to $2 billion is raised in the name of veterans in this country and it's so sad that a great deal of it's wasted," said Daniel Borochoff, president of CharityWatch, the group that rated the organization. "Hundreds of millions of dollars of our charitable dollars intended to help veterans are being squandered and wasted by opportunists and by individuals and companies who see it as a profit-making opportunity."

    CNN has tried to contact the DVNF for more than a year, but hasn't received any specific replies.
    But DVNF is hardly the exception.

    Nearly half of the 39 veterans charities rated by the American Institute of Philanthropy in its April/May 2011 report received F grades, The Huffington Post reported in June. These nonprofits failed mostly because of their exorbitant fundraising expenses and the fact that they spend a small ratio of their expenses on charitable services.
