My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American Cancer Society Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA
After reviewing the financial statements, looking at the organization's 990, and the Stewardship report, I find it hard to believe that people are so thoughtless in their reviews.
Yes the organization has cut a lot of programs, probably because the organization has been going through a massive overhaul! This may be the reason why there have been major cuts this past year and a half.
People are also complaining about the structure and pay scale of these organizations, something that is being handled in the same manner as most other not for profit, or even corporations in the US. The board of directors, who are comprised of elected organization members, vote on compensation for executives and officers of the organization. What all these complaints encompass is a systemic problem prevalent across the US, not because the organization is bad. Since this higher pay scale is systemic it means finding excellent executive officers can be costly! They seem to have the skill set that everyone wants! So, just because this is a not for profit organization, does not mean that it can be run any old way- by any old unqualified persons!
