The Wounded Warriors Project, a group that has been called a legal scam by veterans, has successfully killed off the all-volunteer Indiana veterans assistance group Help Indiana Veterans.
Because Dean Graham, the head of Help Indiana Veterans, wrote that Wounded Warriors was a scam because that so-called charitable organization spends but a few pennies on the dollar in grants to fund endeavors to actually benefit wounded servicemen and women, per their IRS Form 990 from 2011.

I stopped giving to them years ago when I read their ratings on Charity Navigator.
They’re still far mpre charitable than the ‘non-profit’ NFL.
Fisher House is among the tops.
I will need to dust off my reading comprehension cap and read that again for more clarity. Are their clear Good Guys and Bad Guys or is this just a matter of business expediency?
Not a problem. He can set up under a new name.
The Wounded Warrior Project is an anti-gun organization.
Giving away $5 million and spending $88 million on salaries and fundraising IS a scam intended to enrich the heads of the organization.
They are not after individual’s donation.
They switched going after corporate donations and sponsorships years ago, the actual cause forgotten and where $$$$$$ to be made. Big Businesses, nfl, etc.
The Wounded Warriors Project is anti-American, I give to almost all veterans’ groups (especially the USO) but not one dime to the Wounded Warriors Project.
Amen to Fisher House.
They do great things for the families of the wounded here at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital.
I steal their stamps whenever they send me their propaganda....TAKE THAT YOU FAKERS!
Wealthy dad sets up nonprofit, appoints kids, grandkids, and kids of friends as trustees. He's then able to donate money to it, deduct the money from his taxes, and the money goes to his grandkids.

I wonder if they pay FOX for all of those ads - which would make FOX News complicit.
Last Christmas we sent a hefty check to WW and to Fisher House. Wounded Warriors hasn’t left us alone.. The amount of solicitations is overwhelming. I told hubby that the amount of money spent on mailings must be huge. They won’t get another dime from us. Fisher House is the way to go.
I increased my donation to Fisher House this year. Never have and never will give one penny to WW Project.
And even better is...
“Giving away $5 million and spending $88 million on salaries and fundraising IS a scam intended to enrich the heads of the organization.”
Can you cite these numbers ? Link to source ?
Many will surprise you.
I’m confused — the Charity Navigator links posted here seem to indicate that WWP’s overhead/efficiency is roughly in-line with other vets charities of a similar size.
They may have “only given away $5 million in grants,” but I don’t see why that is a big deal, as they are not a grant-making organization. They fund their own programs that they offer to vets free of charge.
Am I wrong?
