HAIR-PRODUCTS EXECUTIVE A FUND-RAISER FOR CHARITY

Monday, September 30, 1991,   Page: B2

Corporations donating to good causes for altruistic and public relations reasons are nothing new. But the owner of a California- based hair- products company believes he has come up with a novel way of enticing customers to give $10 of their own money to a selected charity.
The owner, 52-year-old John Sebastian, was in town Friday to promote his idea, called Club U.N.I.T.E., the tidy acronym for a cumbersome name, Unity Now Is a Tomorrow for Everyone. In a few words, Sebastian is promisin...

CHARITIES LAST TO GET THE MONEY

Sunday, January 9, 2000,   Page: A1

A telemarketing firm was able to generate $679,000 in donations for the New York Special Olympics in 1998. But Special Olympics never saw a dime. In fact, after the telemarketing company was paid, the Niskayuna-based charity wound up losing $29,000 on the deal, according to the most recent state data.
``We took a real hit,'' Special Olympics spokesman James J. Smith said.
The case highlights the state attorney general's findings that many telemarketing campaigns actually give very lit...

CHARITY SEES BENEFIT OF A HOT REAL ESTATE MARKET

Tuesday, August 19, 2003,   Page: E1

The Community Foundation for the Capital Region is an unlikely real estate company. A charitable organization by form and function, it can't turn a profit and it doesn't want to deal in real estate.
But that's where many people's wealth is these days.
So the grant-making charitable group formed a subsidiary -- CFCR Real Property Transactions LLC -- to take donated properties, sell them and pass the proceeds to the Community Foundation.
``A lot of people's real wealth is in real es...

DON'T BE FOOLED BY OFFICIAL APPEARANCES

Thursday, March 7, 1991,   Page: C1

The letter looked quite official, but the name didn't seem quite right.
So says an Albany reader who was asked recently to collect donations for the Cancer Fund of America. "I would hate to see generous neighbors taken in if the group is questionable," she told The Times Union.
Her caution is warranted.
The Cancer Fund of America and its fund-raisers, the Watson and Hughey Co. of Alexandria, Va., have been the subject of a number of investigations for questionable fund- raising. T...

LOCAL CHAPTERS DISTANCE SELVES FROM UNITED WAY

Sunday, March 8, 1992,   Page: C1

The offices of the United Way of Amsterdam are a long way from Washington and Executive Director Lesley Lanzi's $26,750 salary is far removed from the $463,000 annual compensation package of William Aramony, the head of United Way of America.
But the controversy surrounding complaints of extravagant spending which led to Aramony's resignation last month has reached the three- person office in Montgomery County. Lanzi - like her counterparts nationwide - is trying to put behind her all the...
