This KXAN investigation uncovered millions of dollars donated to Texas veterans charities mostly going in the pockets of fund-raisers. They poured financial reports those solicitors are required to submit to the Texas Secretary of State. Their investigation found professional fund-raisers have collected $130,399,567 for veteran organizations since 2001, the records show. But those fund-raisers kept 84% of the money donated. Meaning, most of the money people donate never reaches veterans needing help. They also went undercover to find VFW posts and bars using a potentially illegal method of fundraising in the form of computer video games where people can pay to play and win money, which the Texas Attorney General has ruled are illegal.
