  • Marc Morial $870,000 salary: National Urban League President and CEO Marc Morial , a former New Orleans mayor, received a higher salary than any other official in the nonprofits, taking home nearly $870,000
  • The 14 activist groups received as much as 85 percent of their revenue from federal, state and local governments and collectively spent millions on lobbying
  • The National Council of La Raza, a liberal Hispanic activist group recently renamed Unidos US, spent significantly more on lobbying — $1.3 million between 2013 and 2015 — than any other group analyzed by TheDCNF.

 

( Daily Caller ) Top officials with 14 anti-poverty nonprofits were paid as much as $869,900 as their organizations were enriched with $900 million of taxpayer money, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s (TheDCNF) Investigative Group has found.

The activist groups received as much as 85 percent of their revenue from federal, state and local governments and collectively spent millions on lobbying, TheDCNF’s analysis found. Also, half of the charities’ CEOs made political contributions – nearly all of which was to Democratic candidates.

The groups pursue various activist causes, but each participates in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Approved Counseling Agencies program, which pays nonprofits across the country to help people “find housing, make more informed housing choices, or keep their current homes,” according to HUD.

HUD awarded at least $42 million to 204 such groups in 2016, which was predicted to assist more than 1.4 million households, agency data shows.

 

National Urban League President and CEO Marc Morial , a former New Orleans mayor, received a higher salary than any other official in the nonprofits, taking home nearly $870,000 – more than 35 times the poverty line for a four-person family – in 2015.

Morial’s “energetic and skilled leadership has expanded the league’s work around an empowerment agenda … with a renewed emphasis on closing the economic gaps between whites and blacks, as well as rich and poor Americans,” according to the Urban League’s website.

He also contributed the second most to political candidates – $10,400, all to Democrats since 2008, according to OpenSecrets.org.

The nonprofit’s information page adds: “The mission of the Urban League movement is to enable African-Americans to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights.”

More than one-third – or nearly $55 million – of Urban League’s total revenue came from the government.

Operation HOPE chairman, founder and CEO John Bryant received the second highest salary – nearly $542,000 in 2015 – and has donated $2,750 to Democrats since 2008.
