No fundraising update – schools shutting down, students pulling out of schools, Chad Connelly goes skiing!

Where is (not so) Exceptional SC??? Children are suffering, Chad Connelly goes skiing …

The Waldo cartoon above might actually be funny if we were not talking about your child’s education, their future, their hope … and YOUR finances.  Has anyone heard anything from Exceptional SC???  2019 fundraising has ended as of 12/31/2019 … and NO UPDATES!!!  We have watched this for years … and we are only amazed they can do WORSE than they did before.  Speechless … simply speechless … this is governmental malpractice.

So where is (not so) Exceptional SC???

Schools are shutting down, we are receiving reports that field trips are getting cancelled, children are being pulled out of school midyear, parents working two jobs and getting their credit cards charged up to pay tuition bills … yet instead of spending the last week of 2019 raising as much in the “end of year” donations as possible we found #FireChadConnelly having a carefree time skiing in West Virginia. Or was he looking for donors at the top of the mountain???

That really was “a great way to cap off the decade” … right? Well, not for parents and schools!!! Maybe if #FireChadConnelly did what he gets paid to do, some of our families would be able to take a little break from worrying about how to pay school tuition and go on little a vacation too!

All we can suggest is to CALL YOUR LEGISLATOR … explain the utter incompetency going on … and ask them to return the program to the independent nonprofits like it is done in EVERY OTHER STATE IN THE NATION (and to FULLY FUND the program)!!!  Senator Tom Davis‘ bill S 131 would have fixed ALL of this!!! 

Will Exceptional SC support the bill to fix this mess? Stay tuned!!!

Exceptional SC Legal Status EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Published

on

Seriously … can this be happening again??? 

Granted, I am a tax attorney / CPA … so I think about these things all the time … and one of the VERY FIRST THINGS they teach us “tax people” is BEFORE YOUR CLIENT DONATES TO A NON-PROFIT … check their legal status.  If not all in order, and you let your client donate … it could be LEGAL MALPRACTICE!!!

First you check that the non-profit is actually an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit … and then you check the Secretary of State’s Office to verify the organization’s legal status is current.

(not so) Exceptional SCs Status?  EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Why, Why, Why???  Remember this from JANUARY 2020 … we mocked the incompetency back then … but no, the #FireTheBoard!!! at (not so) Exceptional SC let their legal status expire AGAIN!!! 

Board Malpractice!!!

Legal Status Expired in January 2020 & AGAIN in December 2020

This says it all … WE know how to FIX ALL OF THIS … but the (not so) Exceptional SC Board won’t do anything … won’t talk … won’t meet … just blame others.  STOP THE INSANITY!!!!

“Only” $63,115 Raised in November!!!

Published

on

Well, it is not getting any better.  (not so) Exceptional SC only raised $63,114.78 in November … another huge FAILURE!!!

In November 2019 … as bad as that year was … they raised $427,000. 

Donors have ZERO confidence in the Board at (not so) Exceptional SC … especially after they apparently let the now fired executive director Chad Connelly EMBEZZEL MONEY from the organization … from kids scholarships … and still trying to sweep it under the rug. 

Would you donate to these guys … or as a CPA tell your clients to donate to them?!?!?  It is NEVER going to get better with (not so) Exceptional SC!!!

It is not getting better folks … and the BOARD at (not so) Exceptional SC is still silent.
