Review for Take Stock in Children, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County has failed to comply with the Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act. That law regulates solicitation of public contributions and requires full disclosure of certain information from organizations soliciting contributions in Florida. Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County -- legally known as COLLEGE FOR KIDS INC. -- has violated the Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act by allowing Registration Number CH24332 to expire 11/20/2009 and by failing to disclose information as required by that act. Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County has a history of serious problems. You should carefully watch Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County.

Review for OCEANIC PRESERVATION SOCIETY, Boulder, CO, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

The Cove is an excellent documentary. In reviewing 2007 Form 990, I was surprised that Executive Director Louie Psihoyos received compensation of $189,583, which was 15.22% of Total Expenses. That compensation is high relative to Total Expenses.
