I donated $2,000.00 and in return I get a Thank you letter with a BUT connected to it. Thank you, but will you donate more. WHAT??? How ungrateful !!! So I looked them up and David Mckee (chief operating officer ) makes $522,334 and Richard Shadyac JR ( chief executive ) makes $477,920. That's a big part of what's wrong with this world. Come on! Seriously, no one has to make that much money and if you do, pay if forward. I can't eat that much food, I don't need a mansion to survive, I don't need multiple cars that are ridiculously expensive, boats etc....How much of my donation that I sent on a fixed income went to these two guys making their lives more luxurious ?

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Cut the salaries of the 6 figured and give it to the children in need. Stop sending out Thank You notes with forms attached to them asking to donate more, like you didn't appreciate what you received !!! I make $60k yearly and I feel like I'm rich with that amount. Until organizations can put more toward the cause and less towards making themselves ridiculously rich, then I'm not donating.

I will not be donating to St. Jude, because I cannot trust their Form 990 Tax Return. I just received a direct mail charitable donation request from St. Jude, with address stickers and a note pad. I know the request for donation I received, cost something to produce. I recently started to review Charity ratings because my donation dollars are limited. I am a non-profit accountant with 30 years of experience. I reviewed the Organization's Tax Retrun (Form 990) for 2011 and found no expense whatsoever being attributed to Fundraising. One of my key criteria to donating to a charity is how 'efficient' the charity is in allocating it's dollars. Since these costs are not disclosed, I am suspicious about the ratio of Admin & Fundraising expense to Program Services. When St Jude reports the cost of their fundrasing efforts, I will reconsider my decision to donate.
