Questions are being raised about a Tarrant County-based charity and where it spends the millions of dollars in donations it has received since 2000.
The charity is called Score a Goal in the Classroom and its contributors are some of the biggest names in philanthropy in Fort Worth, including the Amon Carter Foundation, Wal-Mart, Chesapeake Energy and BNSF Railway.
Ernie Horn, a well-liked, fatherly figure in education circles in Tarrant County, is the founder and executive director of the charity.
Horn has raised more than $5 million for books and supplies over the past five years to help kids learn to read, according to his IRS tax filings.
