Review for Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., National Office, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Strange that the Charity Navigator rating also indicates that Ms. Brinker is not compensated as CEO, yet a recent report (2/13/12) from The Daily Beast states she earns $ 400K plus there are questionable expense reimbursements from 2007 - 2009 of over $ 133K for speech writing expenses, certain travel and office costs during a time that she was a "federal employee" serving as Chief of Protocol at the State Department. According to this report , "At the Komen foundation, as the chief executive officer and founder, Brinker is approved for first-class travel, according to the foundation’s tax records. . . Says one former employee: “How many mammograms could you buy for those first-class tickets?”
