The Business of Giving interviews Doug White; insists WWP board resign

Listen to the interview here. Read the independent report here.

On Sunday, Denver Frederick, host of The Business of Giving program on AM 970 radio in New York City interviewed investigative reporter and philanthropic expert Doug White about his independent report, The First Casualty, which analysed the allegations against the Wound Warrior Project and the Board's response to them.

A few highlights:

White said the media's investigative reporting was "dismal" and "biased." He called on the media to apologize for their stories alleging wasteful spending.

WWP's board reacted "very poorly" and "inadequately," he said. "The Board showed that they didn't have the backbone to the right thing and the right time."

White called the Attorney General of Florida to investigate WWP's Board and urged it to resign.

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.
