<Now, I may be overreacting (probably am and maybe I'll cool down later), and I'm not going to try
to get the blemish off my report (hey I screwed up). But, you can bet my letter will ask to be
removed from any solicitation list, any alumni mailings and any other dealings with the University.
I've GIVEN way more than the original $2000 back to the University over the last few years and I
HAD planned on giving more.>

Mike7279,

I do not think you are overreacting at all. Since you are a big donor then by you stopping your donations it will be tangible evidence that they have to fix their systems. Otherwise it will be easy for them to sweep it under the rug.

If they are truly sorry then maybe you can start giving again in the future.

I was intrigued by your comment that as an Estate Planning Attorney you have clients who have to ask what a good charity would be. It seems to me that there are so many around that it would not be something a person would have to ask you. (By the way I have two more if you are interested in a non-profit nursing home or my church that is undergoing a building addition.)
