Additional Notes

Complaint: I donated a car tot he Armed Forces Survivors Fund through ARS. When they came to take the car, they would not give any receipt for it. Seems bizarre. Two weeks later I received an email indicating I could take a tax deduction for $500. I have had several offers for two thousand dollars and more for the car, but wanted to make a donation. Blue Book value was a good bit higher. When I called to question the person on the phone indicated they sold it at auction for probably less than $500, but she would not provide any details. It seems to me like there was no real interest in securing value for the Armed Forces Survivors. I could have, and should have sold it myself and just made the donation. ARS seems to highly unethical in this regard.

Desired Settlement: I would like ARS to clearly indicate on their web site that they do not make any attempt to maximize value for the intended charity, and that the donor can make a more significant donation to the intended charity by disposing of the vehicle personally.

Business Response: Dear Mr. *******:

I just a moment ago left a message on your voice mail regarding your donation.  It seems we have a couple of issues that require explanation and information.  Firstly I would be happy to discuss the auction result of your vehicle, (your car was sold at one of the Nation's largest automobile auctions).   I would also like to discuss our receipt process with you in detail.

Lastly, I saw from your complaint that you had called the office to discuss your donation.  I was dismayed to find no notes in the diary about the call.  I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this issue with you directly and inquire if you recall with whom you spoke.  We clearly failed in our effort to provide quality customer service and communications.  I assure you that I will deal with this personally and answer any questions or issues you might have.
