CNN's Drew Griffin has just uncovered a veterans organization, the National Veterans Foundation, is spending most of the donations they receive on something other than veterans.
This new discovery comes as Griffin has been reporting on money given to another group - the Disabled Veterans National Foundation. IRS documents show that not one dime of the $56 million raised by them went directly to veterans.
Yesterday Griffin asked one of DVNF’s volunteer board members how the funds were used. It appears most of the donations went to a private company hired by DVNF and other charities, including the National Veterans Foundation.
The website for Quadriga Arts states, "We offer nonprofit organizations, fundraising agencies and commercial brands innovative direct marketing campaign solutions that produce extraordinary results."
