Wingate, NC -- The foundation created to preserve the papers and legacy of Jesse Helms has spent more on fund raising and administration and less on programs than recommended by organizations that monitor nonprofits, according to a newspaper report.

The Jesse Helms Center Foundation has $11.1 million in assets, including a $3.3 million building it opened in 2001. The center is best known for its lecture series, which draws such speakers as National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. "
