Listen, would you know how to best run a nonprofit foundation? I wouldn't have a clue. Ditto, it seems, with plenty of professional athletes. Of course, if you were to run a serious charity, chances are you might investigate how to best direct it and maximize its giving potential. Alas, an investigation by the Boston Globe into more than 150 Internal Revenue Service filings by 50 nonprofits operated by professional athletes showed that nearly half gave less than the accepted percentage of their income to the actual charities.

Re "Land-Use War, Malibu Style," Jan. 23: The rental of the Foundation for the Junior Blind campground to nonblind organizations is money-based. Jeremy Joe Kronsberg and his family have the right to their lifestyle, undisturbed by politically correct bureaucrats.

Gloria Jean Gibbons, 72, who inspired her daughter Leeza to create a nonprofit organization that supports patients with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers, died May 22 at the Lowman Home Nursing Center in White Rock, S.C., after a long battle with the degenerative disease. The Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation was set up by the television personality in 2002, about three years after her mother's illness was diagnosed. The organization works to provide better care, education and support for those affected by the disease, which is marked by the deterioration of brain cells.

There seems to be a very troubling misconception in our community about San Pedro (Peninsula Hospital's) need for donations. The proposed affiliation with Little Company of Mary Hospital would mean a $12-million capital infusion for our community hospital. Because of this, some people apparently feel San Pedro Peninsula Hospital no longer needs their contributions. Nothing could be further from the truth! The reality is that San Pedro Peninsula Hospital will need more than $30 million over the next five years simply to stay current with modern medicine.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Ennis House, the 1924 hilltop mansion that is one of the master's most celebrated residential designs and one of Los Angeles' most revered architectural landmarks, has sold to billionaire Ron Burkle for about $4.5 million, 70% less than its original asking price. Ennis House Foundation Chairwoman Marla Felber confirmed on Saturday the exact price: $4,458,084.58, which represents the organization's balance on a construction loan taken out to repair L.A.'s most prestigious fixer.
