We have been following Kathy Sak's work for several months: her website and blog have been linked on the side of this blog since last fall.
The nice thing about Kathy's work is that she includes public documents for all to see.
For instance, Kathy posted the form 990 for United Way of Lake County; what's form 990?
Form 990 is the "Compensation of Officer's, Directors, Trustees, Key Employees, Highest Compensated Employees, and Independent Contractors" filed on behalf of the United Way of Lake County, Inc.
Take a a look here:
debrah-foley-form990 This form tells us that Debrah Foley, Executive Director, made $116, 172 in 2008. We in no way shape or from begrudge this compensation; you get what you pay for is the old saying.
However, the public has a right know these facts.
It is a good bet that the Board of Directors authorized Ms. Foley's compensation. Here is a list of the Board Members of the United Way of Lake County:
