Review for CLEVELAND BOTANICAL GARDEN, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This is an institution that epitomizes how non-profit organizations generate negative stereotypes for the sector. The compensation allocated to the 4 top employees indicates salaries that represent more than 13.2% of the operating budget. Typically the benchmark for non-profits is 12% of the operating budget allocated to the full/overall administration of the organization, but 13.2% to senior staff salaries is unconscionable.

One must wonder where is the Board in its fudiciary responsibility of an organization that is clearly experiencing financial difficulties, but continues to fund individual staff members rather than focus its resources on the mission and operations of a historical organization such as this.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I am a visitor of the institution.
