'View' Gals Give God's Love $15K;
ED Pay = $310K

The hot meals delivery program in New York City for people with AIDS, other illnesses and senior, today reports on a nice chunk of change from some of the great gals on ABC's gab-fest The View:

Three co-hosts of the hit day-time talk show The View pledged a total of $15,000 to God’s Love We Deliver on Wednesday, October 27, 2010. Joy Behar made the first bid to her “favorite charity”. Inspired, Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters also promised to pledge $5,000 dollars each.

GLWD is a worthy charity providing an essential direct service to thousands of folks in need, and I hope they put the $15K to use feeding people, and not executive salaries or overhead.

I've checked two sources for info GLWD's president and CEO, Karen Pearl, and the Charity Navigator site lists her compensation at $310,000. That is a bit higher than what is reported in the org's latest IRS 990 filing for 2009, which lists Pearl's pay at $287,288. The revenue was listed at $8.6 million.

Pearl's compensation is in league with that of Craig Shniderman, CEO of the Washington, DC, based Food and Friends org, with a similar mission. Shniderman's current pay is $333,857. Their current revenue figure is $7.1 million.

Two emails were sent to GLWD's media rep, David Ludwigson, along with a voice mail message, asking for clarification regarding Pearl's compensation. He has not provided me with a reply, but if he does, I'll amend this post.
