Claims by the Southern California Coalition for Responsive Philanthropy that the BankAmerica Foundation contributes too little to the poor are arbitrary and misleading ("Charities Failing the Poor, Group Says" April 14). The coalition complains that "only" 28% of the BankAmerica Foundation's nationwide giving in 1992 went to poverty-related programs. However, as Times reporter Susan Moffat points out, this figure does not include $3.5 million in corporate gifts to the United Way. Indeed, we contribute more money to the United Way than any other corporation in California.
