Partners in Health a Nonprofit Corporation
December 30, 2012

After reading previous comments, I thought the "senior executive salaries" issue raised below warranted further explanation. According to Charity Navigator, the _top 4_ executives at Partners in Health earn _in aggregate_ less than $500K. The previous comment could reasonably be interpreted as suggesting that a single person earns $500K or more.

Having been been closely associated with businesses ranging from pure start-up to nearly half a billion in value, I can tell you that the senior team's compensation is well below market for an organization with $88 million in revenue last year. Every executive with, say, a Chief Financial Officer's skill set, has a set of job opportunities from which to choose. As a donor, I expect the organization to pay reasonable salaries in relation to the officers' alternatives, taking a host of factors into account (e.g., what are salaries like in the area in which the organization is based, for people with comparable skill sets)? Furthermore, can anyone seriously complain about Executive Director Ophelia Dahl-- the leader of the this $88 million a year organization--- earning $89,000 a year...? I am entirely satisfied with PIH's cost structure.
