Lansing Attorney General Schuette reports: “among Michigan-based fundraisers, J. Milito & Associates of Grand Rapids consistently produced favorable results. Its 56 clients shared an average 73.9 percent of the $1.4 million raised on their behalf. Only two of the 56 experienced a loss. Overall, however, that level of return was the exception.”
