Since numerous people are pointing out the CEO, I thought I'd post the link to what they're referring. I'd also like point out, not all charities are nearly as transparent with where their money goes, not to mention that over 85% goes directly to charity. So while I'm not a huge fan of that large a salary, please don't throw the proverbial baby with the bath water. They do a ton of good work that needs done, and they exist because of donations and volunteers. The CEO taking home a large salary, doesn't negate that good work, nor does it nullify the substantial amount of money and percentage of money that goes directly to gifts/charity/etc.

Just some thoughts, and the link to the charity info is below. Regardless of what I've said, or anyone else view the info and facts below and make your own decision

I've been a monthly donor for two years, but after learning from Charity Navigator that as of 2013, Lois Lee was taking a salary of ~ $240,000, my support will stop immediately. (The total annual revenue for Children of the Night is only about $1.5 million!) Other charitable organizations whose CEOs are paid the same amount (or less) as Lois have revenues of $80 million or more and are 30 times the size of COTN. Lois's compensation is unjustifiable in every way whatsoever.

Ways to make it better...

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

Require Lois to accept a salary cut of 50% or resign. There are plenty of smart, well educated, competent, experienced, visionary, non-self-serving humanitarians who would gladly take her place and be delighted to be paid $120,000 a year!

Children of the Night is a caring, open, non-judgmental organization. It is a privately funded non-profit organization, dedicated to rescuing America’s children from the terrible ravages of prostitution and exploitation. The Children of the Night home is open to child prostitutes throughout the United States, and the Children of the Night hotline is open to rescue these children 24 hours a day; their hotline staff works closely with law enforcement to rescue children from pimps. After rescue, The Children of the Night Home has an on-site school and college placement program. Rescued kids complete a comprehensive program of academic and life-skills education, and upon completion, caseworkers are available to provide ongoing case management to hundreds of graduates. The staff is a caring, dedicated group of professionals.
