Where does that donation money go?
I thought it was always “Rob the rich to give it to the Poor”
Now: Rob the Poor to enrich the Rich.
Donating – Interesting, ever wonder where that donation money goes?
Keep these facts in mind when “donating”. As you open your pockets for yet another natural disaster, keep the following
facts in mind; we have listed them from the highest (worse paid offender) to the lowest (least paid offender).
The worst offenderCEO, receives $1,200,000 per year, (plus use of a
Rolls Royce for his exclusive use where ever he goes, and an expense account that is rumoured to be well over $150,000.)
Only pennies from the actual donations goes to the UNICEF cause (less than $0.14 per dollar of income).
The second worst offender this year is Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO Of the American Red Cross… For her salary for
the year ending in 2009 was $651,957 plus expenses. Enjoys 6 weeks – fully paid holidays including all related expenses
during the holiday trip for her and her husband and kids. Including 100% fully paid health & dental plan for her and her
family, for life. This means out of every dollar they bring in, about $0.39 goes to related charity causes.
The third worst offender was again for the 7th time was, Brian Gallagher, President of the United Way receives a $375,000
base salary (U. S. Funds), plus so many numerous expense benefits it’s hard to keep track as to what it is all worth,
including a fully paid lifetime membership for 2 golf courses (1 in Canada, and 1 in the U. S. A.), 2 luxury vehicles, a yacht
3 major company gold credit cards for his personal expenses… And so on. This equates to about $0.51 per dollar of income
goes to charity causes.
Fourth worst offender who was also again in the fourth spot, for every year since this information has been made available
from the start 1998 is amazingly yet again, World Vision President (Canada) receives $300,000 base salary, (plus supplied – a
home valued in the $700,000 – $800,000 dollar value range, completely furnished, completely paid all housing expenses,
including taxes, water/sewer, telephone/fax, HD/high speed cable, weekly maid service and pool/yard maintenance, fully
paid private schooling for his children, upscale automobile and an $55,000 personal expense account for clothing/food, with
a $125,000 business expense account).
Get this, because it is a “religious based” charity, it pays, little to no taxes, can receive government assistance and does not
have to declare were the money goes. Only about $0.52 of earned income per dollar is available for charity causes.
Of the sixty some odd “charities” we looked at, the lowest paid (President/CEO/Commissioner) was heading up a charity
group in Canada . We found, believe it or not, it was……
Ready for this.
I think you might be surprised…
It is, none other than…
The Salvation Army’s Commissioner Todd Bassett receives a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing
this $2 Billion dollar organization. Which means about $0.93 per dollar earned, is readily available and goes back out to local
charity causes… Truly amazing … And well done “Sally Anne”
Rotary & Lions Clubs use all donations to go back into the community as all account monies are the responsibility of the
club to raise by odd jobs to a separate account $1 for every $1Goes back to the Community
No further comment is necessary…”Think Twice” before you give to your charity of choice as to which one really does the
best for the most – or the least for the most, for that matter. Remember charity starts at home. Look after the people of this
99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this..
I Just Did!
