Former and current employees of the Wounded Warrior Project are accusing the veterans charity of wasting donation money on luxury purchases.
CBS obtained Wounded Warriors' tax forms and found spending on conferences and meetings jumped from $1.7 million in 2010 to more than $26 million in 2014. That's about the same amount it spends on its largest program, combat stress recovery. (Video via Wounded Warrior Project)
"Donors don't want you to have a $2,500 bar tab. Donors don't want you to fly every staff member once a year to some five-star resort and whoop it up and call it team building," a former employee told CBS.
The charity's CEO declined CBS' interview request, but a spokesman said the company's spending is "the best use of donor dollars" to provide its services.
According to the Wounded Warrior website, the charity plans on helping 100,000 veterans by 2017. However, it's unclear how many have already been counted in the charity's 13-year history. (Video via Wounded Warrior Project)
