I have never heard of a 501 c3 called Compassion International until today.
Janet Jackson sells them a box set for $800 on Julien’s Auctions. “All proceeds go to Compassion International.” It’s for Jesus, of course!
Well, on their last Form 900 tax return, they claim $167 million in wages. Yes, it’s true. About $4 million of that goes to their top executives, each earning over $200,000.
I would have a lot of compassion if I made that much money tax free. Alleluia!
What have you done for me lately? would be a good song for Compassion International. It’s a big bunch of money. They claim to give away over $635 million a year. Of course, not a penny is specified on their Form 990. Everything is vague, large amounts like $19 million for “Sub-Saharan Africa”.
None of this makes sense because their fundraising activities are very cramped. They say they made $20 million from 5 events. But their net income from events is $0.
I do not know. Unless Janet herself is in the box, I’d think twice!
The money from the rest of the auction goes to Miss Jackson. No tour this year, you know.
