I'm curious as to why this small / small-medium nonprofit pays its ED over $300,000?

I have worked with Tenacity for the past two months and it has been a great experience for me. I kids are wonderful...they love the competition. Perhaps more importantly, they greatly appreciate the tutoring -- any time I help it's always met with "please" and "thank you." I have sincerely enjoyed my experience thus far and look forward to going back for the rest of the semester. Hands down, a great place to volunteer.

I have worked with Tenacity for 4 years tutoring and mentoring children during the school-year program. I have also attended and worked at several fund-raising events Tenacity has hosted. My experience has been fantastic. Tenacity has allowed me to directly connect with students and their families. The organization has well-trained staff who are competent and responsive as well as supportive. Their training has provided me with excellent tools. I would recommend anyone who is interested in youth education to volunteer with Tenacity.
