This should be a wake up call for all non-profits in the area. Remember it wasn't that long ago that the CEO of Discovery Counseling Center in Danville was found to have misappropriated funds from that organization. As long as we treat these organizations as fronts for socialization of our areas elite and feel good philanthropy this will continue to happen as there is no one who could believe that this is happening right under their noses.

Before you donate to nonprofits check them out. You should look at a financial statement prepared by a legitimate, reconizable accounting firm and not some member of the organization itself. Also, make sure that the majority of its funds are going to charities it says it is supporting rather than to staff and directors bloated salaries. Many nonprofits are fronts for individuals who syphon off monies and perks that never go directly to their causes. Be careful when giving money it may be going into the pockets of thieves. Many nonprofits that are good and honest, but plenty that are not.
