Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I work in the nonprofit field. I gave up a lucrative investment banking job to help nonprofits run more efficiently so that more staff time and more donor money goes towards the mission.

A CEO of a $70mm organization would be paid in the millions. Why should a CEO who grows awareness and total revenue by almost 3 times in the past few years not be compensated? Why should someone capable of making 10 times more be criticized for making $300k? They are basically donating millions of dollars in opportunity cost by choosing to work for this organization.

Frankly all the operational staff of this and other nonprofits forgo top pay and work long hours to support the missions and constituents for which their organizations exists to serve. Without them there would be no programs. Think also the all the WWP marketing goes well beyond WWP and raises awareness of what our Vets have given to this country and that we as citizens have a duty to take care of them when they come home.
