Non-Profit Pro: Independent, 79-Page Report Rips Media, Board in Wounded Warrior Project Controversy

Read the full story here. Read the independent report here.

According to NonProfit Pro: "Just days after Wounded Warrior Project announced layoffs and a $100 million revenue drop, a comprehensive report found fault with the media, the charity’s board of directors and virtually everyone else involved in the investigations into the organization’s spending.

"Doug White, former director of the masters of nonprofit management program at Columbia University and author of four books on nonprofits, spent months writing and researching the 79-page report independently and without compensation. Citing 63 sources and countless interviews, the report provides an exhaustive recounting of events and a thorough review of the media’s reporting, the board’s response and key sources’ claims."

About this Blog

This blog was created by Steven Nardizzi, former CEO of Wounded Warrior Project and Al Giordano, former COO. On March 10, 2016, we were fired by the board of the WWP in the wake of media reports about wasteful spending at the charity we had led for eight years. In the same press release announcing our firings, the Board of WWP issued findings of an independent investigation disproving the allegations contained in those media reports. Nevertheless, the media's false reporting has taken hold and and we are forced to defend ourselves and the wonderful organization and people that has done so much help our wounded veterans.
