American Red Cross Charity Donation Drive

Established in 1881, the American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization dedicated to educating about and responding to emergencies and disasters in the United States.

In addition to responding to emergencies and disaster aid, the American Red Cross also provides community services that help the needy; communication and comfort for military members and their family; blood related services- collection, processing, distribution; and international relief and development programs.

The Swag Bucks you donate all this month will be turned into a cash donation, given directly to the American Red Cross. Every Swag Buck you donate could help save a life.

Every Swag Buck donated equals $0.01, so donating 1,000 Swag Bucks is equivalent to donating ten dollars. For more information on the American Red Cross and how you can help, please visit redcross.org.

I'm always a little worried about donating online because I have no idea where the amount really goes. I would much rather help in person than anything. I hope this is truly going to help!

Check out charitynavigator.org, which lists details like what % of money goes to fundraising (rather than directly to those in need), how much their CEOs make, how public or secretive they are about their finances, etc.

Red Cross needs donations? If they need the money so badly perhaps the first step they ought to take is trim their CEO Marsha J. Evans' excesses, which includes a $651,957 annual salary, six weeks fully paid vacation time and 100% health care for her and her family.

American Red Cross's CEO is Gail McGovern. Her annual salary is $500,000 and she has not received a raise since she became CEO in 2008. She got a signing bonus of $65,000 and has vacation and benefits like most CEOS. The info about Marsha J Evans is wrong. She made $468,599 in 2003. Now the Red Cross has over a billion dollar budget and helps educate and aid people all over the United States as well as the world. It needs employees who will help improve the organization and a common practice for organizations like the Red Cross to pay employees including the CEO competitive pay so they will not quit and go to another organization. An organization with people constantly leaving it cannot effectively operate.

I was originally correct about Marsha J. Evans salary. Information Liberation puts her salary at $651,957 in 2003, not $468,599. And before her ouster, she was getting paid $780,000 according to The Washington Post. If they need employees who will improve their organization the Red Cross sure doesn't do a good enough job of showing it. See Rosalind Clayton's racial discrimination lawsuit against the Red Cross in 2011; Linda Hildreth's sex discrimination lawsuit against the Red Cross in 2008, and the National Labor Relations Board lawsuit against the local Red Cross in Peoria for refusing to bargain in good faith with its unionized employees. It doesn't look like the Red Cross is treating their female, minority or unionized employees with any respect, does it?

More accurate sources, Charity Navigator and Guidestar, puts the pay of CEO Gail McGovern at close to the one million dollar range. Red Cross needs to pay their CEOs competitive pay but they have no problems with laying off 1,000 of its own employees in its regional and national offices and this came at a time when they paid Gail McGovern a very handsome signing bonus. A CEO of a charity shouldn't be paying herself close to a million dollars a year. No matter how big the charity. If Gail McGovern wants to get rich she should go work for a corporation.

The Red Cross constantly needs donations as there are constantly emergencies and disasters all over the United States and world. It would take an insane amount of money to fully provide support to every single emergency and disaster. The Red Cross might have a budget over $3 billion but that still would not cover everything. That is why the Red Cross need donations. It needs to be able to continue to provide support all over the world and the more donations it receives, the more help it can provide.

They helped with providing relief to victims of Hurricane Katrina, but they gave better services to affluent white neighborhoods and far less assistance to the poorer African American communities. During September 11th, they did provide relief.......to limo drivers who said the World Trade Center was their main source of income. The Red Cross did help pay for New Yorkers utility bills but only residents in the financially upscale districts of Tribeca and Soho. For more information, check out the September 30th, 2005 edition of Democracy Now! interview with Richard Walden and "The Red Cross Money Pit" in the Sept. 25th, 2005 edition of the LA Times. What type of "relief" services does the Red Cross provide again and why are they giving such a disproportionate amount of services to the financially affluent?

If her annual is that much, she is making the same amount as a walmart regional manager. Compared to other CEOs in this country, she is very much so underpaid.

Oh yeah, before you reply it might be a good idea to check your facts and figures first before you offer a rebuttal. I checked simply hired and the average salary of a Walmart regional manager is $49,000, this falls laughably far short of the six figure income salary Marsh J. Evans is making as the CEO of the American Red Cross.

According to http://www.glassdoor.com/Salary/Walmart-Regional-Manager-Salaries-E715_D_KO8,24.htm (average salary attained from glassdoor in case the link is removed) the average salary of a Walmart Regional Manager is about 2.5x greater than your $49,000 estimate. It is still vastly smaller than what Evans was making though. The $49,000 mark is closer to an Assistant Manager than a Regional Manager: http://www.glassdoor.com/Salary/Walmart-Assistant-Manager-Salaries-E715_D_KO8,25.htm

I know you said you checked Simply Hired, but I can't imagine that number being accurate as most entry level managers that I've encountered start around the 50k mark. Few Regional Managers would be at that salary.

And, by the way, CEOs in this country are supposed to be making a lot of money. Their job is twofold: make money for their investors and provide goods and services to their customers. While the American Red Cross's job, as I've noted before, is to provide emergency relief to people who are in disaster situations through no fault of their own, such as flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes. What Marsha J. Evans is doing, in effect, is profiting off of human misery. I think it is obvious where people's swagbucks donations are going to when they donate to the American Red Cross.

Jr9, I did the math a long time ago and if 1M of the SBs members donated just 5SBs each, the total cash amount would be $250, 000! Yes, which amounts to watching only a few short videos.... :)
