Mary says the minute she learned of the financial trouble her ‘Foundation for the Advancement of Women’ was experiencing, she contacted her advisors and lawyers, with the hopes of getting to the bottom of the situation.
As reported by The New York Post, FFAWN has no offices, telephone number and hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations are reportedly missing.
Mary recently spoke to E! News about the situations and said she plans to make sweeping changes.
“As founder and CEO of FFAWN, I am ultimately responsible for anything that goes wrong. The problem is that I didn’t have the right people in the right places doing the right things. This should have never been allowed to happen, but it did and now we are fixing it.”
“FFAWN is working as quickly as possible with a new team of experts that includes a philanthropic consulting firm, a non-profit law firm, and a forensic accountant,” she said. “Their goal is to get the foundation back on track, rectify outstanding issues, and make good on all of FFAWN’s obligations.”
