Recently, Make-A-Wish® Montana has received several calls from consumers who are being solicited by phone from individuals who claim to be raising funds for Make-A-Wish®.
Make-A-Wish does not conduct telephone or door-to-door solicitation, but is often confused with organizations that do. It is important that if you are the recipient of such a call to please call us at (406) 259-9848 to report the incident.
While there are many worthwhile charitable organizations that depend upon donations solicited by phone to sustain their projects and reach important, worthwhile goals, it is necessary for the well-intentioned donor to recognize legitimate fund raising practices and to recognize and avoid such pitfalls as telemarketing fraud.
To report a telemarketing call or for more information about Make-A-Wish, please contact Stevie Moe at 406.259.9848.
