Having a WTH moment here about BC Cancer Agency

My family donates every month to the BC Cancer Fund.

Today I find out the now resigned CEO of the Agency was getting paid out of the money

people like me donate to pay his $500,000 plus salary.

I’m shocked and disgusted.

I am paying for research. Not some entitled asshat’s salary.

Seriously thinking about cancelling my donation until I can get some clarification and assurances that

research will be the sole use of the funds I give.

  1. That’s really shameful. I hope he’s getting prosecuted to the full extent of the law. It always sickens me when I hear about things like this (we have quite a bit of that here in the US.) Not only are people like you who were donating being robbed, but things like this also make new donors leery.

    Well it is like the media outlet reported.
    A lot of us that give is because of knowing or having lost someone to cancer.
    To have a butthole take advantage of that is beyond my ability to articulate.
    That and the fact that the people I give money to in trust, thought it was okay.

    Yes its happened in Ireland too on different charities. result well meaning charities are finding it difficult now to help the people that really need it.. I support a number of charities its always a concern to know the money is going where it needs too.
