Court Documents Show AEF Let Donation Collections Languish

On December 2nd, 2008, the Alameda Education Foundation filed a lawsuit alleging that their online donation collection service provider Count Me In Corp. was delinquent in paying roughly $80,000 of back-donations since March 2006. How did such a sum of money accumulate over more than 2 years?

The excerpt from AEF’s plaintiff claim in Alameda County Superior Court, filed pro bono by Page Barnes of Foley & Lardner LLP, reveals that AEF signed a contract with CMI in March of 2006 and that as of October 2008 – 2.5 years after signing the contract – CMI was behind in making transfers of donations to AEF to the tune of $81,720.22. According to their I.R.S. Form 990, “Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax” form for the year ended 2006, the last year available, AEF’s total “Direct public support” (Item 1b) contributions were $102,834. So the missing $81.720.22 represents 80% of 2006’s public contributions.

The court documents indicate that CMI was supposed to remit payments to AEF semi-monthly. Over two-and-one-half years, that means there were roughly 14 to 15 remittances that CMI was supposed to make to AEF. How did the AEF board and officers allow such a balance of back-payments from CMI to accumulate to 80% of their annual contributions? We applaud AEF’s quick response to CMI’s default on promised payments in October 2008, but who was minding the store from March 2006 to October 2008? Anyone who contributed money online to AEF from March 2006 through October 2008 should be alarmed.
