Wounded Warrior Project
The board of Jacksonville-based Wounded Warrior Project has asked independent advisors to review the charity’s finances following claims in national media of bloated salaries and over-the-top events.
Both CBS News and the New York Times in January released reports critical of the Jacksonville-based charity Wounded Warrior Project.
They spoke with current and former employees who allege the charity funds lavish company retreats, expensive travel, and spends too much money on its image instead of on veterans.
CEO Stephen Nardizzi says that investments in fund-raising, and marketing are commonly used by for-profit corporations.
We discuss the latest with Florida Times-Union reporter David Bauerlein, whose recent investigation into Wound Warrior Project's fundraising and spending appeared in this Sunday's edition of the newspaper.
