Review for Santa Barbara Zoological Foundation, Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

The mission of this zoo is not about the animals but rather to be an event center not which are related to the mission of the zoo. Weddings, parties and other events just focusing on bands and drinking which cause trauma to the animals, noise pollution to neighbors not to mention just waste all in the name of money. There is no way that this organizations can maintain there charity status with the amount of unrelated business income that bring in through the events. In addition their expenses are out of line. The CEO salary is 2and 1/2 percent of revenue and 25% of adminstrative expenses. This is only on 9 million of revenue.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in relations with neighbors and the management of the zoo

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change it fundraising from events donations and sponsorship

Role:  General Member of the Public & Lawyer and sit on board of directors for several charities.
