National Organization for Marriage promises that donations will be matched. Reputable organizations do not raise funds with fictitious “matching donor” campaigns. Invariably these are merely restructured contributions that are not really contingent on others and may have already been received. The donor may not even be aware of the arrangement. It is a scam. It seems that someone is always supposedly matching contributions to NOM.

Brian S. Brown is more shameless than Frank Gallagher. Since inception NOM has expended more than $65 million in donated funds and has absolutely nothing to show for it. NOM is also insolvent meaning that contributions go to past due invoices rather than programs. Yet:

Marriage Supporter — With only about 36 hours left in our year-end $100,000 matching gift challenge, NOM needs every supporter to step up and make an immediate contribution so that we don’t lose out on this incredible opportunity to have every gift we receive be doubled by midnight tomorrow night.

I am so grateful to all those who have responded with a contribution to support our year-end matching gift challenge, an incredible opportunity made possible by a group of donors. But, unfortunately, we are still $22,885 short of our goal.

Maybe they should partner with Paula White. She is a more effective scammer.
