According to the report, Kars4Kids and Oorah lost .2 million in failed real estate projects controlled by a second cousin of the charity’s president, Rabbi Eliyohu Mintz.
Kars4Kids also invested in what turned out to be a Ponzi scheme, according to Swanson’s report.
According to Swanson, however, only about 44 percent of the $88 million it raised nationally from 160,000 donated vehicles between 20 went to good works.
Most of that money, amounting to $40 million, was given to an affiliated nonprofit called Oorah, which promotes Orthodox Judaism among children mostly in New Jersey and New York.
The charity, one of the largest vehicle donation charities in the country and perhaps best known for its radio jingle, solicits vehicles from donors and raises money by selling and scrapping them. “Donors need accurate and straightforward information to make informed choices.” Kars4Kids, which operates in all 50 states, defended its practices and said it made sense to spend most of its money on the East Coast.
But according to a compliance review issued Thursday by Swanson’s office, Kars4Kids spent just $11,600 on charitable programs for Minnesota residents from 2012 to 2014. “Headquartered in the Northeast, many of our programs and recipients naturally come from this area,” spokeswoman Wendy Kirwan said in a statement.
Prof Harvey whose team at RCSI carried out the functional studies in normal and CF lung epithelia said this study provides evidence that bacteriophages such as KTN4 have potential to efficiently fight the most common CF lung infections.
