WHO GETS THE MONEY?

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, December 1995:

This is our sixth annual report on the budgets, assets,
and salaries paid by the major national animal and habitat protection
groups, listed below in alphabetical order, together
with selected other organizations of note. It is the fourth of
these reports published in ANIMAL PEOPLE.
Each group is identified in the second column by
apparent focus and philosophy: A stands for advocacy, C for
conservation of habitat via acquisition, E for education, H for
support of hunting (either for “wildlife management” or recreation),
L for litigation, P for publication, R for animal rights,
S for shelter and sanctuary maintenance, V for focus on vivisection
issues, and W for animal welfare. The R and W designations
are used only if an organization makes a point of being
one or the other.
While many groups are involved in multiple activities,
space limits us to providing only four identifying letters.
Except where otherwise stated, the financial data
comes from current Internal Revenue Service Form 990 filings,
covering either calendar year or fiscal year 1994.


To put these numbers in perspective, consider that
the National Charities Information Bureau requires approved
charities to spend at least 60% of their budgets on programs,
not including direct mail associated with fundraising. This
standard is stricter––and more indicative of an organization’s
priorities––than the IRS rules, which allow charities to write
off some direct mail costs as program service under the heading
of “public education.” Thus the figures that organizations
declare and the figures as amended in accordance with NCIB
guidelines are often very different. The % column states each
organization’s overhead and fundraising costs as declared to the
IRS. The ADJ column states those costs as they would be
under NCIB guidelines. Differences appear in boldface. For
certain smaller organizations, which use Form 990-EZ instead
of the longer Form 990, it is not possible to accurately distinguish
between program expenses and overhead. However,
since such organizations rarely have paid staff or do much
fundraising, it is reasonable to assume a heavy tilt toward program-related
expeditures.
Groups which have large endowments and therefore
receive a great deal of interest tend to have lower overhead
because they are not obliged to spend as much on fundraising.
The seventh through ninth columns provide data on
assets. Note that shelters and sanctuaries tend to have more
fixed assets (land, buildings, and equipment) because of the
nature of their work.
The NCIB also suggests that, “Usually, the organization’s
net assets available for the following fiscal year should
not be more than twice the higher of the current year’s expenses
or the next year’s budget.” However, not all cash and securities
are actually available; many older organizations derive half or
more of their income from interest.

NOTES
A – Data is taken
from a balance sheet
sent to membership.
B – The American
Humane Association
Animal Protection
division had
a 1994 budget of
$2,188,051; the
Child Protection
division budget was
$1,908,105.
C – The Animal
Rights Network
I n c ., publishers of
Animals’ Agenda
magazine, has
claimed funds
received for subscriptions
which
still have issues to
run as a liability of
$202,204. This is
not the practice of
ANIMAL PEOPLE
and other peri-
odicals with which
we are familiar.
D – CASH ran a
deficit for fiscal
1994 of $37,669,
$13,940 of which
was for legal fees in
connection with the
transition of the
organization following
the 1992 death
of founder Luke
Dommer. This is
recorded as an overhead
expense; otherwise
the balance
of expenditures
would be 67% for
programs and 33%
for overhead.
E – Defenders of
W i l d l i f e r e p o r t e d
costs for Information
& Education
and Membership
of $1,446,116
and $1,859,529,
respectively, which
might have included
direct mail fundraising
not otherwise
reported as such.
D e f e n d e r s c o u l d
thus have spent as
much as 77% of its
budget on fundraising.
Defenders director
of accounting
Rose-Ella Slavin has
informed us that
“The Information
and Education category
is used for
costs including
printing and distributing
our magazine,
D e f e n d e r s, and
newspaper, Wildlife
A d v o c a t e, and expenses
related to the
development and
printing of our
Watchable Wildlife
Viewing Guides.”
These are all clearly
legitimate program
expenses. “The
Membership heading,”
Slavin continued,
“contains the
expenses for membership
renewal
mailings and providing
service to our
members, but also
contains $851,791
of membership
d e v e l o p m e n t
expense,” which we
count as an overhead
cost.
F – Total assets add
up to less than the
sum of fixed assets
and cash because of
declared liabilities.
G – These figures
cover only the first
nine months of
1994; Farm Sanct
u a r y changed its
accounting period in
midyear. See sideb
a r Creative Acc
o u n t i n g for further
details about F a r m
S a n c t u a r y f i n a n c i a l
practices.
H – HSUS also filed
both a California
state report and an
IRS Form 990 for
“HSUS California
Branch, Inc.,”
declaring receipt of
“support from the
general public, contributions
from individuals”
of $677,090
in 1993, with no
other activity or
assets, and no
activity, income, or
assets for 1994.
I – IFAW has 14 affiliated organizations, 13 of them chartered abroad.
J – IPPL president Shirley McGreal asked us to note that “our assets are mainly
gibbon housing.”
K – MSPCA fund-raising expenses are low in part because net revenue of
$10,074,771 was generated by operating three veterinary hospitals, and net revenue
of $258,433 was generated from a pet cemetery and crematorium.
L – The National Wildlife Federation declared $1,901,000 in costs associated
with fundraising but reported as program service. Our analysis indicates that
amount should have been circa $14,290,325.
M – Data is taken from The Chronicle of Philanthropy, November 2, 1995.
N – Pet Savers is a subsidiary of the North Shore Animal League, almost totally
funded by NSAL. In 1994 it operated at a net loss of $2,946,420.
O – Comparing the overhead costs of Primarily Primates and Wildlife Rescue
and Rehabilitation is both inevitable, given their proximity and rivalry, and
misleading. Primarily Primates spends almost twice as much on fundraising
because it receives far less grant support, and must therefore raise more money
from small donors by direct mail. WRR executive director Lyn Cuny is on the
boards of directors of two of her major benefactors, the Summerlee Foundation
and the Ahimsa Foundation. The $36,240 Ahimsa gave to WRR in 1994 was
the second-highest amount it gave to any organization or project. S u m m e r l e e
grant data for 1994 had not yet arrived at press time.
P – The Sierra Club took a net loss for 1994 of $1,104,243. Some direct mail
fundraising costs may have been concealed within the $9,750,043 spent on
Membership services.
Q – WSPA’s total assets add up to less than the sum of fixed assets and cash
because of declared liabilities.
W S P A ran a deficit for 1994 of
$887,043.
R – The World Wildlife Fund
declared $6,390,712 in costs assocated
with fundraising but reported
as program service; our own
analysis indicates the amount so
declared should have been
$16,088,409.
S – According to notes attached to
the Americans for Medical
Progress IRS Form 990, “AMP was
established to increase public awareness
of the medical progress and
public benefits that result from the
humane use of animals for laboratory
testing and research…Operations of
AMP were terminated at year end
and net assets were contributed to
Americans for Medical Progress
Educational Foundation,” which
appears to be primarily involved in
other aspects of public health-related
lobbying. Funding for both organizations
came almost entirely from
U.S. Surgical Corporation.

INDIVIDUAL COMPENSATION (EXECUTIVES, DIRECTORS, TOP-PAID STAFF AND CONSULTANTS)

The Pay column below combines salaries,
benefit plan contributions for those whose organizations
have a benefit plan, and expense accounts for the relative
handful of individuals who are not required to itemize
expenses. Individual independent contractors such
as attorneys, accountants, and consultants are listed as
well as directors and regular staffers.
Four sets of salary norms are presented in
boldface. Norms identified as S A W A come from the
1993 Society of Animal Welfare Administrators survey
of Salary and Personnel Practices. Norms identified
as C&L come from the Coopers & Lybrand publication
Compensation in Not-for-Profit Organizations.
Norms identified as A L & A come from a survey of
1,377 nonprofit organizations conducted by A b b o t t ,
Langer & Associates, as summarized in the September
6, 1994 edition of The Chronicle of Philanthropy.
Norms identified as T P come from a Towers Perrin
survey of 321 of the 400 biggest charities in the U.S.,
as summarized in the October 4, 1994 edition of the
Chronicle of Philanthropy.
Only six groups listed in these tables rank
among the top 400: the Nature Conservancy (28),
World Wildlife Fund (130), Ducks Unlimited (154),
North Shore Animal League (192), National Wildlife
