The thing that really gets me is the salaries for some of the top officers in these charities. $500K/year seems to be the norm with many going upwards of double that.
This doesn’t seem to be isolated in charities, either. There are quite a few PACs out there where the principals take this much, PLUS consulting fees, elaborate travel pay, etc.
I remember, when I volunteered for Help the Aged in the UK, just after leaving school, being shocked to discover that the manager was a paid employee, rather than a volunteer. Surely there are people out there, retired former managers, who could this on a rotational basis?
Yeah, but there’s a big difference between a PAC and a charity.
And let me ask my question again, this “Are You Ready for Hillary” thing-y, who’s running it? What happens to the money they’ve collected if she doesn’t run?
Money in politics....equiring minds....just askin’!

I recall a story a few years ago in the ny post that revealed a new york charity that was raking in 30 million a year, its CEO was being paid a salary of 900 thousand a year.
