CALIFORNIA STATE PARKS FOUNDATION
April 3, 2013

Hello,
First off; this is the first time reading online about California State Parks Foundation. I received a donation request via USPS mail. I was extremely interested in making a donation. My husband requested before I send any money, to check and see exactly what percentage is used for the state parks. I found Charity Navigator rating just by luck. Still not sure what percentage my donation is actually used for the parks. My concern was after reading 2011 fiscal report, $10,179,097 was collected from donations. The President Elizabeth Goldstein's compensation/pay was $169,469 for 2011. Call me crazy, WOW I'd like that (NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION) job. I WOULD like someone to explain to me the basics. I realize no one works for free. But seriously.... $170,000 for what. Im not minimizing the job. Im just saying!!! If this non profit organization is really wanting to help California's State Parks, MAYBE admin shouldnt take so much off the top. NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION's mean lots & lots of money for the administrators. What happened to simple; I make donation of $100 and $95 actually goes towards the cause. I think that somehow along the way we have lost the ideal..... non profit organizations were established to help. Somehow the person/persons running the organizations are making more money then the actual cause. How sad...
