United Way paying their local leader $358,000 a year sounds like profiteering off the donations meant for the poor.

You people who post on here are absolute idiots and haters!
United Way has a Board of Directors that is repreesentative of the community and decides the wages and package for its CEO. She didn't make her salary, their board did. I hardly think that a large bord of CEOs/Executives and other civic minded people would give Ms. Jackson an undeserving salary.
Stop hating and wasting so much time denigrating an organization tht historically has done a lot in this community. My family has greatly benefitted form many of the agencies that United Way funds and it is working in conjunction with each other versus opposing each other and fighting for dollars that makes this happen.
LIVE UNITED !!

1. That kind of feedback always gets back to the intimidators, on which the snitch's job depends, and retribution ensues.
2. The President of the United States makes $400,000, and is responsible for a whole country. Something like UW is supposed to help the community, a certain level of selflessness should attach. Her salary is MUCH higher than the directors of some of these agencies.$100,000 a year would be plenty.
3. Ah yes, Community Care Day. They announce the day, and the pairing up of companies with agencies. After that, it's all on the volunteers and agency directors.
Why is that an organization that relies so much on volunteers has overhead of over 10%?
Why have they GUTTED funding to agencies that help elderly and disabled?
