Korean Salvation Army

  1. Dec 28, 2008 #1
    Korean Salvation Army have spent somewhat 50 milion US dollars,
    to build their own building,
    (that is only a expense for construction, not including price of land which is very expensive)
    The donor must give money to salvation army for purpose of charity.
    but they use that money for their own usage.

    Salvation Army of other country is similar with that of Korea?
    and this kind of doing can be considered as a charity fraud?

    Well, once they build their buildings, they shouldn't build anymore, so all the money after this will go to charity?

    you feel like they should rent, instead?

    well, whether or not to have a building might depend on their needs and circumstances,

    it may be a charity fraud depending on whether they have misused funds for the building?

    In my country, there was recently a charity fraud, out of the many revelations, the chairman of the charity used donation funds to book 1st class flying tickets where an economy class would suffice. He even had gold fittings in his office toilet.
