If it is truly a charitable foundation looking for donations, they are hurting more than they are helping.
Other Foundations as in Big Brother/Big Sister come up as that on our caller id. This one comes up as unavailable or unknown.
I do understand that even with being on the Do Not Call Lists, these type of numbers are exempt.
It is going to make donations for any type or organization go down with this type of tactic.
We have reported them every single time they call and will continue to do so even though they are in premise exempt.
Let them Identify themselves as such and adhere to our requests to not be called.
Sad state our society is in with all the unwanted calls coming into our homes.
How are these charities getting our phone numbers? Are health care groups (doctors practices, hospitals, etc.) selling them under the guise of a "worthwhile cause"? The more the nonprofits call, the more determined I am not to give them anything, no matter how worthwhile the organization! Nonprofit organizations ought not legally be permitted to harass residences. I often feel that they are spending more soliciting than they are receiving.

I called back using *67. It's new England epilepsy foundation donation center.
Caller ID = 800 Service
I just got a call which I have on my block list. I get no ring but I do get a list of blocked calls on my phone. See below.
I have the Panasonic cordless telephone Model kx-tg6842b (2 handsets)
You can block 250 numbers plus kill the one ring that existed on earlier models that only allowed 30 blocked numbers.
The one handset model sells for $70 at Amazon.
be careful-they say they will be in your area to collect your donations of money-sounds weird to me
