For-Profit Telemarketing for Charities Investigation

Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating potential class action claims against telemarketing companies that solicit donations for charitable organizations.  Certain for-profit telemarketers reportedly solicit donations for charities and do not routinely inform donators that only a small fraction of the proceeds (often as little as 10-20%) will actually be used to support the non-profit organization.  The vast majority of amounts donated are kept by the telemarketing company.  Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating whether the practices of these telemarketers may violate state laws and whether potential class action claims may be viable.  If you donated to a charity through a telemarketing campaign operated by a for-profit telemarketer and believe that the telemarketing did not disclose the percentage that would actually be received by the charity, we would be interested in hearing from you.  Please contact the attorney below.
