Cancer Fund of America

UPDATE: The Cancer Fund of America, along with Cancer Support Services, has agreed to dissolve under a settlement with the FTC and its president, James Reynolds Sr., is banned from profiting from charity fundraising or nonprofit work and from serving as a charity’s director or trustee or managing charitable assets. 

Cancer Fund of America collects donated goods and ships them to families in need after paying for expensive cancer treatments. But according to the Tampa Bay Times, the CFA’s founder and other family members earn a combined $1 million in salaries. And while fundraisers have taken in $98 million dollars, “patients have gotten less than $1 million in direct cash aid over those 10 years, IRS records show.” The Tampa Bay Times in 2013 ranked Cancer Fund of America the second-worst charity in America.
