"Our Motto is it's always Right to be as "POLITICALLY CORRECT"!
SPLC Donations Committee Chairperson
FACT: The Southern Poverty Law Center is a NON-PROFIT Organization, therefore, we get to keep 100% of your Generous Donations!
Fund raising, assets & program expenses
As of October 2008, the group's net assets were $170,240,129. Chief Counsel Morris Dees was paid $273,132 and the President and CEO, Richard Cohen, was paid $290,193. Total revenue in 2007 was $44,727,257 and program expenses were $20,804,536. In other words, they raised twice as much they spent. Fund-raising and administrative expenses were $9 million, leaving $14 million to be put into the center's vast assets.
According to a March of 2007 article in Harpers Magazine by Ken Silverstein, the SPLC combats mostly impotent groups like the Nazis and the Klu Klux Klan; raising obscene amounts of money by hyping fears about their power and influence. Hence, they have become the nation's richest "civil rights" organization. In 1978, when their treasury held less than $10 million, Mr. Dees vowed they would stop fund-raising and live off interest when they hit $55 million. A decade later, the goal was upped to $100 million. The group's newsletter promised that this amount would allow it "to cease the costly and often unreliable task of fund raising."
SPLC is a tax-exempt, charitable organization incorporated in 1971 under tax code 501(c)(3). In the fiscal year ending in 2009, the group's assets totaled at $189.7 million dollars. Approximately 68% of our total expenses were spent on program services in 2009.

SPECIAL NOTE: All un-used Donations are Deposited directly into PRESIDENT MORRIS DEES Personal Checking Account on the 1st and 15th of each Month!

I used to donate as did many friends and colleagues of mine.
We all stopped after SPLC took on the case of the wealthy child molesting cult called FLDS in 2007.
This cult has hundreds of millions of dollars but SPLC represented them so not a dime more in donations from me.
Not saying not everyone deserves legal representation but if they can afford it they should pay for it and FLDS definately could have afforded it but SPLC instead wasted their donated monies.

There are coons in England? Cool beans. I mostly use hounds on them, easier to tree them that way. I shoot them then take them home to the old lady and she cleans, skins, and fries them up with some greens, gravy, and fresh homemade biscuits.
