In a recent poll, 88% said they would not have donated to the ASPCA if they had known about the CEO’s $500,000+ a year salary.
A commenter on the poll put it best, in my opinion: “If you do the math, Say donors donate $20.00 a month each. It would take 25,000 total donor months @ $20.00 a month to pay this salary.. Is this where you thought your money was going when you were donating?”
This is a GREAT example of why you need to research an organization before writing a check. Where is your money going?
