I have The Nature Conservancy named in my Trust. I like what it does. But after seeing the CEO's salary I wonder if I should reconsider.

I donated in late 2010. Since then, I regularly receive multiple-sheet mailings from them telling me that my membership is expiring and to "RENEW NOW." It seems like these Asks come monthly, or more frequently. This would feel excessive and frustrating if the letters were from a credit card company, but from an organization dedicated to protecting "Earth's natural systems [which are] at risk," this is particularly maddening. I feel vaguely hounded by them and believe that their frequent mailings undermine their goals of conservation. I'm writing this in May 2012. More than a year after my contribution, I continue to receive their "renewal notices."

I can't contribute any longer while the CEO makes a half million dollars per year.

Others have complained about the Director's pay at $300,000 dollars; that's why I stopped contributing last year. Now it's $482,632. This is a charity, folks! Given how many of the well-known charities are giving their management outrageous amounts, I'm guessing it's for the same reason as Wall Street....they're all on each other's boards and give each other approval for that sort of thing. This is the way I'm sending the message....hope enough people do that they listen.

The Nature Conservancy is a great organization that pursues what I call "practical environmentalism". They don't get mired down in political controversy; they just go about the business of protecting lands, waters, and diversity of life.

In Texas, amazing what they do. Think about how much this organization does everywhere. Of course they need professionals to run it. 120 million acres it says on their web site. That's a lot to take care of. Glad they do pay staff well. That way it really will be in good shape.

make sure less places need protecting. Thankfully they're there.

I've given to the Nature Conservancy for over 20 years, but no more. I live on less than 25,000 a year and don't see why I should give my hard earned money so the CEO of the organization can make almost $500,000 per year.

I love the mission of the Nature Conservancy but in the future I am
donating to the Salvation Army.

I too only have rave reviews for TNC. I learned about them a few years ago with the Plant a Billion Trees campaign. To be able to plant 1 billion trees is such an undertaking. They can do it. They use science and they are strategic. We need more to work on the ground like TNC. All my interactions are only positive and I encourage all reading this to donate today.
