In the wake of its controversial move to launch a new, nonprofit arm last year, the Guy Fiers Foundation announced Monday that it is no longer fundraising from donors.
The foundation’s first step in launching a new nonprofit was to hire a former head of the U.S. Navy, Mark A. Dorn, to be its new president.
Dorn, who served as the Navy’s Undersecretary of the Navy for Intelligence and Surveillance, had previously been the vice president of the Guy Fawkes Society, a nonprofit organization that has raised more than $500 million in support of U.K. peacekeeping efforts.
Dorsa is a veteran of the Afghanistan war, which he joined in 2006.
He has been on the boards of several organizations in the U:a nonprofit for military veterans, the American Federation for Children, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for International Peace and Security.
Dora, a longtime New York Yankees fan, has also served as a board member of the John Hancock Company, which owns the New York Mets baseball team.
Doran is a longtime Wall Street executive, serving as an adviser to Goldman Sachs.
He was recently appointed to the board of directors of the World Economic Forum, an organization that promotes peace and democracy around the world.
The nonprofit announced its decision to end its partnership with the Fieri Foundation, saying it is “a complete and total mess.”
The announcement comes after a series of reports about the foundation’s finances and fundraising, including one by The Boston Globe that accused it of mismanaging donations.
The Fieri foundation has previously admitted that it did not follow its own guidelines and had allowed the foundation to collect more than a million dollars in donations.
It was not immediately clear how much money was actually collected and how much went to the foundation itself.
