$31,999 Raised in October – WORST MONTH YET!!!

Published

on

OCTOBER FUNDRAISING  –  WORST YET  –  $31,999:  Friends … October was the worst fundraising month yet for the (not so) Exceptional SC Board.  Worse than even January 2020 … BEFORE they were even open / accepting donations.

October 2020 Fundraising: $31,999.00 = $1,032.23 / day

Below for your reference are the results from 2019.  It does not take a rocket scientist to conclude this is going to be a disaster … AGAIN. 

The (not so) Exceptional SC Board cost children $7.45 MILLION in 2019

… it now appears the (not so) Exceptional SC Board will cost children $10 MILLION +/- in 2020.

We call that … Board malpractice!!!

So why won’t they PUT THE KIDS FIRST?!?!?!?

So where is (not so) Exceptional SC:  Well … the (not so) Exceptional SC Board sent a few email blasts to parents and school officials back in September … after Chad Connelly was fired … pushing for the legislature to INCREASE THEIR FEES … clearly reflecting their priorities (#FollowTheMoney!!!),
… so we know the (not so) Exceptional SC Board knows “how” to send email updates.
So why then has the (not so) Exceptional SC Board gone silent …. again???

DON’T LET THE (NOT SO) EXCEPTIONAL SC BOARD OFF THE HOOK!!!  CALL THEM!!!

They asked for (or offered to do) the JOB.  So make them!!!

HOW CAN YOU HELP?:  

PLEASE – Contact the EXCEPTIONAL SC BOARD:  

  • Ask them if they will support INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS
  • Ask them if they will meet to discuss a solution. 
  • Tell them they are killing the program.
  • Let them know what this is doing to your family.
  • It is not hard … but the time for them to speak-up is YESTERDAY!!!

$8 MILLION “lost” by (not so) Exceptional SC!!!

Published

on

Well, the final numbers are in for 2020. 

Exceptional SC raised “only” $4,045,107.80 (out of the available $12 MILLION) in 2020.

As such … $8 MILLION has been lost forever … AGAIN!!!  Exceptional SC “lost” $7.45 MILLION in 2019!!!

THE BANK STATEMENT:  We were able to get the bank statements this past week via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. 

These bank statements revealed (among other things) that $2.1 MILLION was from one donor.  Had it not been for the generosity of this one donor … it would have been even more disastrous.

Palmetto Kids FIRST Donor:  And no … this $2.1 million donor was not a huge victory for (not so) Exceptional SC.  This was a Palmetto Kids FIRST donor we first brought to the table in 2014. 

Exceptional SC is still living off all the work the “independent non-profits” did and not adding any new value to the situation.

Nothing has changed for the better … 

Independent Non-Profits … just like every other state … is the ONLY solution!!!

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!!!!
