The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, or just plain "Elks", is second only to the US government in the amount of money given for student scholarships. Their Grand Exalted Ruler (President)receives no salary as well.

The other day a lady from the Red Cross showed up in my yard and asked if I would contribute to the flooding in Pakistan. I said I wish I could but my hose only goes to the end of my driveway.

We do not need to look any farther than Salisbury for executives of 501C3 non-profit corporations with world-class salaries.

Consider the following salaries of Peninsula Regional Medical Center executives in the latest form 990 filing (year ended 06/30/2010)

Alan Newberry (former CEO): $942,466
Margaret (Peggy) Naleppa (current CEO): $688,488
Thomas Laurence (VP Medical affairs): $522,061

Not bad for a non-profit corporation! Can't wait for the new tax filing to come out. I am sure Auntie Peggy will get a well-deserved bump in her pay. Does anyone else feel this is obscene?

i recently stopped giving to the united way via payroll deduction because of information found on websites like these. I will give to charities that are not business' to make money, give CEO's benefits of companies who contribute large amounts of money. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
