Which Children To Leave Behind???

Published

on

Still NOTHING From Exceptional SC!!! It has been three weeks since #FireChadConnelly was let go and #RemoveTomPersons resigned from Exceptional SC Board. 

We received the updated fundraising numbers from the SC Department of Revenue … and they are on track to raise “only” $1.6 MILLION in 2020.

So where is Exceptional SC???  

The Fall Semester is here … the promised funding is not … there is not even a plan in place on what to expect …. no communications whatsoever!!! Politics over children … AGAIN?

We offered a solution … to raise the full 2020 available $12 million by 12/31 …. and next year’s available $12 million in early January 2021.  That is $24 MILLION by 1/31/2021!!!

Yet we are hearing Exceptional SC Board Members are holding out … REMAINING SILENT for a PROMISED $7.5M “bonus”.

CARES ACT MONEY???  Rumor from legislators now is that the Governor is going to “give” Exceptional SC $7.5 MILLION from his CARES Act money.  Where did they come up with that number?  From the $7.5 MILLION that Chad Connelly LOST in 2019.  Where is the logic there???

Well … a $7.5 MILLION free “bonus” would be nice … but we have heard these “rumors” many, many , many times before …

>  30 days ago we heard it was going to be $15 MILLION.  What happened to that?
>  We also heard our kids with “special needs” were going to be included in the $32.5 MILLION S.A.F.E. Grants.  What happened there?  We were left out.
>  “If” this $7.5 MILLION was real … why not TELL PARENTS!?!?!?!  Put it in writing???  Announce it!!!

What do we teach our children …

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.
