Easter Seals, Inc.
For charitable organization, more than $200 in base salary is too much on donor's dime. People wake up! If the CEO is getting $500+ salary then what about the VP's? You really should look at the whole top level management but if the CEO is getting over paid then the rest will be not far behind. Don't donate to these organizations and be outspoken to reform these organizations or the salaries will be even higher!

Here’s some useful information. In 2009 Jim Williams, Easter Seals CEO, made a little over $700K. In 2010 he got a generous increase to almost $790K. This is all public information, available on any charity's tax filings. "But organizations must pay top dollar to get the best," you say? Well, compare that to the top execs at Doctors Without Borders and Feeding America, two charities with larger budgets that pay their top folks far less than Williams gets. The Easter Seals Board must be really out of touch to keep making Williams ultra-wealthy in this time of economic crisis, as families dealing with disabilities weather rising costs while programs are slashed. So shameful. What a squandered legacy.
