These people are not good they are only sending 7-11 %of collected money to vets. There are lots of dubious things about this group read more on this site
http://www.military-money-matters.com/foundation-for-american-veterans.html

Quoted from http://www.military-money-matters.com/foundation-for-american-veterans.html

The Foundation for American Veterans does not publish financial information on its web site.

The Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance reports that the organization failed to provide the requested information, so BBB cannot determine whether it meets their 20 standards for charity accountability.

According to a Charity Navigator report in 2005, the Foundation for American Veterans used just 6 cents of every dollar raised for services for veterans.

Despite this lack of transparency with regard to their financial information, we were able to locate a form filed by the Foundation for American Veterans, Inc. with the Secretary of State for the State of Washington (charities must register in each state in which they intend to solicit donations). According to the information filed with Washington State, for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007, the organization had revenue of $5,263,927, and spent $528,196 on program services out of total expenses of $5,118,508.

In other words, for FY 2007, the Foundation for American Veterans devoted 11% of its total expenses to program services for veterans.

The form did not break down those expenses, but we think it would be safe to say that a large percentage went to professional fund raisers. It did list Associated Community Services as a paid fundraiser organization.

When we checked that organization's Commercial Fundraiser Profile Report with the Washington Secretary of State, we learned that in the fiscal year ending December 31, 2008, Associated Community Services (ACS)
reported that it raised $1,264,583 in contributions, and of that amount, only $480,465 went to the charity client for whom the funds were raised. In other words, the charity got 38% of the money raised, and the fundraising organization kept the other 62% as its fee.

The Fundraiser Profile indicates that ACS also solicited contributions on behalf of Disabled Veterans Services, Inc. and the Washington chapter of the United States Navy Veterans Association.

An article in the Portland Observer in December, 2009, indicated that FAV used 8.67 percent of funds raised for its cause, landing Foundation for American Veterans on the Oregon Attorney General's list of the 20 worst charities soliciting in the state, based on how much of its contributions actually go to the stated cause.

Wikipedia reports that the Foundation for American Veterans "makes far too many calls to people who are not veterans. The reps hang up before one can get to the telephone and they call up to 8 times in a single day. This practice is not only excessive, but counterproductive in obtaining donations because they are such a nuisance. When calling back their number, there is no option for removing one's phone number from their database."

If you would like to contact FAV to ask more specific questions, you may e-mail them at fav (at) fav (dot) org. Charitable organizations that are exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c) are required to allow public inspection of or provide copies of their annual returns (From 990). If you would like to review FAV's most recent Form 990, request a copy directly from them at the above e-mail address.

No calls yet but this number keeps sending me texts saying "click to open" and I am not going to do that. All my phones, family phones, are on National Do NOT Disturb Registry but regardless this and other numbers are now bombarding our phones daily with bogus messages or calls. Best I can recommend is to create a contact for each call, save it, then mark it as a "blocked" number...they can call now but it will never ring my phone or receive a text from that number. National DNC Registry does not seem to be working.

When answer there was a long pause, until "Steve" responds and asks for me by name. When I acknowledge, says calling for Foundation for American Veterans, at which time I hung up. Hard to tell if live call of Robocall. Okay to call per DNC guidelines (charity), but if only 10% to 15% goes to cause, not giving them anything.

This group, FAV has called me many times to ask for a donation when they send me a letter, and could I return it with money. I've told them that I can't afford to give anything, I'm a widow on very limited income. They won't take no for an answer so I usually just hang up on them. So annoying to say the least!!!

We received about six calls yesterday and we received our first call today at 8:30 am. It seams as if this company's goal is to harass us. Thank you to everyone for providing us with information about this group.

These people call constantly. This is a horrible "charity" that gives almost none of the collected funds to any actual veterans groups. Ignore them.

Have been calling for months now, even though I never answer. Frequent early calls--between 7:00 - 8:00 AM, as well as evening calls. They never leave a message, very annoying. I suspect a robo-call.

This excuse for a charity that is run by a for profit telemarketer given they keep 89% or more of what they bring in for themselves before giving anything to a Veterans organization has annoyed me 14 times this last week.
I believe our legislation needs to re-define the definition of a charity as this is, in my opinion, every bit of a scam as the others.

This starts with a pause, the the robo cal starts with "Hello (your name)" if you respond the sales pitch starts. There's nobody there. Say what you want, the call goes on. On another site the person reports agreeing to donate and never got a live person.

This number keeps calling me twice daily. Sometime as late as 8:30pm. If you answer the phone there is no one there so how do you get these jerks to leave you alone. I have already registered a complainy with the national "do not call" registry to no avail. They need to be stopped.
