American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities, Inc.
April 5, 2013

I have donated off and on to St. Jude for many years. Using Charity Navigator, I am reviewing all the potential charities that I will support this year. After seeing the two huge salaries for the CEO and COO of St. Jude, I concluded that my financial support should go elsewhere.

Humane Society Silicon Valley
August 29, 2012

I have supported the Humane Society of Silicon Valley for the past many years and hope to continue my support. My concern is that less than 80% of expenses go to actual program activities and fundraising is over 14%. In addition, for a charity of this size, the CEO compensation is on the high side: 2.4 cents of every dollar go to the CEO. I hope future fundraising costs can be reduced and the CEO compensation be more in line with similar charities.

American National Red Cross
September 26, 2011

I used to donate yearly to the American Red Cross. However, after finding out through Charity Navigator that the CEO makes close to a MILLION dollars annually, I have decided to donate elsewhere. Any charity organization that pays its CEO that much does not need my contribution.
