    "Just to give you an idea what the United Way CEO is making. Information is from web site Charity Navigator: Compensation of Leaders (FYE 12/2010) Compensation % of Expenses Paid to Title $248,978 1.45% Craig Chancellor President" - iamconfused

    It's amazing how much they make and how much does *NOT* make it to the intended targets.

    I'll never give a cent to that organization, as they are clearly scamming the public.

    My thought too, how much he's going to get? Wonder what kind of package the last CEO got?
