This organizations recent (2009) Form 990 indicates that about $3 million goes to salaries, for an organization with 5 employees, out of their $8 million revenue. Something doesn't make sense here. Simply the fact that about 38 cents of every $1 of revenue goes to salaries in the organization is concerning- why the high overhead? And for only 5 employees? Where is the $3 million in salary & compensation going? This organization needs a full and transparent audit before I even consider donating.

Quite outrageous, but typical, that this Non-Profit, with annual revenues of over $200 million, gave their employees a 3% pay raise despite their annual revenues DECLINING by 17.5% from 2008 to 2009, and they still managed an average employee salary of over $75,000 per year- almost DOUBLE the median American household income. What a gesture to give yourself a 3% pay raise when so many Americans lost their jobs, or got no pay raise, during that period. Wow, now that's charity- pay yourself first, right? How hypocritical, arrogant, and greedy of this Non-Profit to abuse their tax exempt status and use tax payer subsidy to enrich themselves.. The IRS should revoke the tax exmempt Non-Profit status of the UNCF, as it seems to only exist for the primary benefit of the Non-Profit employees themselves.
