A lot of money is being raised in the name of a non-profit organization, but they are not keeping a lot of the money that be being raised, says Barbara Toms
, director of the state Division of Charitable Solicitations.
Arc officials, however, defend the arrangement.They note that Arc's new contract now pays the charity based on the volume of items collected, not on a percentage of the proceeds.Yet, they also admit that, so far, they are receiving even less money under the new terms.
It appears that they have turned management and control over to a for-profit, says Barbara Toms
, the charity regulator.
The charities like to get the money with the least amount of work, says Barbara Toms
.i have heard some of them say, well, if I get five cents off the dollar that be five cents more than I would have had..
Now, as a result of our NewsChannel 5 Investigation, state regulators have opened an investigation of B&R's activities.Toms
believes they should be forced to register as a fundraising consultant and submit audits so donors can trace their gifts to charity.
