    The incumbent District 8 member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Scott Wiener, used to be on the board of directors of HRC. Just one of many reasons why he’s got no activist support.

    With all this funding, I find it interesting, when I emailed them about doing some type of supportive protest on the first day of Marriage here in NY, I was told they didn’t have funding for that, and if I wanted to see it done I should do it myself. Wow, no funding for LGBT projects but funding for big payroll. What’s wrong with tho picture!

    Just went to Charity Navigator. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation gets a four star rating. Here’s a link to the site http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=6229#.VAX2abl0w5s. 77% of funds go to program expenses 12% to fund raising and 10% to administration.
    Are HRC and the HRC Foundation separate entities?

    There are no top jobs in America leading a following of over 1.3 million members that pay less. Look over any other group of that size and realize the Best People Deserve similar amounts of pay. If they worked in private industry they would earn much more. Consider the results to our community by Chad working with Prop8 over the recent past alone! I will stay the fight and Thank Chad and staff for their fine work! Mel Heifetz

    There was no confusion. I just added up the numbers from both the HRC PAC and the HRC Foundation (501c3) 990’s. The total 2013 compensation for Chad Griffin is $507,907. Just the facts.

  6. Gary Olsen says:

    Sorry, just read your full post explaining the somewhat convoluted 990’s. Running a both a PAC and a 501c3 can be a tricky business when it comes to transparency.

    […] Last week we reported with Todd Swindell and longtime gay activist and San Francisco District 8 Supe… of The Petrelis Files this week revealed Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin’s 2013  has climbed to the outrageously astronomical sum of over half-a-million dollars a year ($507,000.00 to be exact)    Well that was not exactly right.  There was some confusion in reading HRC’s 990′s […]
