Autism Charity’s $ Goes to Solicitors

As part of their ongoing investigation into how much of charities’ money actually goes to charity, the Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Reportinghave responded to reader requests to check out the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. What they found is another of America's “worst charities,” since little money actually goes for the purpose intended. The Indiana-based foundation spends more than 90 percent of its money on for-profit solicitation companies. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
