Florida CEO of domestic violence charity makes $761K per year

Miami HeraldTiffany Carr runs the state’s top domestic violence organization, a nonprofit that uses public money — state and federal — to finance shelters and other essential services. And she makes a good living.

How good? In a June 30, 2017 report, the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence disclosed she is paid $761,560 annually, a salary that is approved by its board. She hit that mark after receiving pay raises totaling $313,475 over a two-year period.

“That’s — it’s ridiculous,” said Dan Ravicher, a professor at University of Miami School of Law who focuses on nonprofits, business and social entrepreneurship. “We’re talking almost 2 percent of the budget being paid to one person. That’s pretty unusual.”

How much does the Florida governor make? $130,000 at the time of this writing. Maybe there needs to be a rule about state funds going to "charities" with CEO salaries higher than the governor's. Or the President's, since the US president makes $600,000 or so a year (once you include expense accounts and budgets).
