F rated charity is soliciting in our area

By Vivia Kellogg


Dear Editor:

We've received about 20 annoying robo-calls in the past month from Foundation for American Veterans soliciting donations. While we care greatly about our veterans, I was suspicious enough to check online to see if they were a real charitable organization. While they do exist, Charity Watch gave them an "F" rating because they spend 90 percent of their donations on overhead and only 10 percent on programs to help veterans. That's not good enough for me! I called them today at 720-403-9498 to request our number be deleted from their solicitations calling.
