"It's a public charity, and you have a board of directors with one independent board member," he said. "That means that he [Dwayne Wade] and his sister can make all the decisions for a public charity, so it would be better to broaden the board to represent the public's interest."
    -Daniel Borochoff on governance concerns at Wade's World Foundation, founded by NBA star, Dwayne Wade
              Chicago Tribune, 07/24/2016
"Very few donors would agree to that high of a fundraising cost. You're talking about other people's money. You're ripping off the donating public...(and) when it's a hot button issue like veterans, they'll give."
              -Mr. Borochoff on Veterans Assistance Foundation's 83% fundraising cost.
               The Capital Times, 07/12/2016

 "Our charitable resources are getting locked away," Borochoff said. "Particularly with the way the economy is, where a portion of the population is really struggling, really suffering and in dire need of charitable aid, it's problematic for us to be taking $15 billion off the table for later."
   -CharityWatch's president, Daniel Borochoff on the huge amount of charitable dollars that are annually being placed in donor-advised funds for use sometime in the future.
   The Washington Post, 06/21/2016
