Review for New York Blood Center Inc, New York, NY, USA
NYBC has given their 19 honorary Trustees & Directors (Non-Employees) a $9 Million salary + pension plan package. This is unheard of in other 501's in the USA. Most Trustees & Directors take expenses or a token salary. During this time when the honorary people got $9 Million per year, the research chimps were left to die. NYBC said they didn't have the money to pay for their care, per Christopher Hillyer's statements. The total for the chimps was $360,000 yearly. In their 2014 tax returns, they show $6 Million in Interest. That is a lot of money for a Non-Profit. It's based on investments, stocks, & properties. NYBC received $1.7 Billion dollars from individuals during 2010-2014. It appears they are willing to spend over $9 million on 19 "honorary" people, but not $360,000 on research animals of 37 years. These animals brought them over half a billion dollars in Hep vaccine patents. New York Blood Center is immensely wealthy. It's head, Howard Milstein, is currently being sued for illegal loans targeting minorities in his Emigrant Bank. Please donate "the gift of life" to Sloan Kettering or The Red Cross. Honor the national boycott against this so-called Non-Profit. Thank you.
