As a non-profit agency, we rely on the generous support of business sponsorship and donors such as you. We take your contributions seriously as you put trust in our organization to use your donations wisely. We solicit donations through letters, face-to-face asks, as well as secure forms via our website, Facebook page, and Razoo.
It has come to our attention that an organization by the name of Charity Blossom is seeking online donations on behalf of the Columbus Area Arts Council without our permission. A large number of Bartholomew County organizations, as well as organizations from across the country, are on their website. Charity Blossom is listed at a San Francisco address with a phone number that only takes incoming calls. They encourage you to contact them via email which is not advisable at this time.
Marissa Manlove, President of Indiana Grantmakers Alliance (IGA), has contacted the Indiana Attorney General’s office and they are looking into the matter.
As we learn more we will keep you updated.
