Children’s Wish Foundation International

June 17th, 2013

Children’s Wish Foundation International has been named to a list of America’s worst charities by the Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Reporting. Not to be confused with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the charity comes in at #3 on the list for spending far more on itself and telemarketers than on aid.

According to the report:

Children’s Wish reported that it spent about $600,000 granting wishes to terminally ill children in 2010 and gave them donated goods valued at $3 million. It paid professional fundraisers nearly $6 million for their services that year.
