Now I am calling attention to the salary package for Karen Pearl, pictured, who heads New York City's hot-meals program for people with HIV and AIDS and other illnesses called God's Love We Deliver. While they don't post their IRS 990s on their financials page, GLWD does link to the filings as posted at GuideStar so I give them half a point for some transparency.
GLWD in 2012 had revenue of $12.2 million and Pearl was compensated $374,400.
Let's compare those numbers with those of other food bank programs in New York City. The Food Bank of NYC reported revenue of $75.2 million and their executive director Margarette Purvis was paid $226,000. They get a full point for posting their 990 on their site.
The biggest budgeted hunger agency is City Harvest, which had revenue of $90.9 million in 2012 while the head of the agency Jilly Stephens took home $310,100 for her services. City Harvest shares their latest 990 on their web site and the too get a point for this.
Very interesting that of the three NYC food bank nonprofits, GLWD has the smallest revenue amount yet the executive director is the most handsomely compensated. When I see compensation packages as high as the $374,000 for Pearl, I wonder what's so nonprofit about that kind of pay.
