A recent STOPP report documented the following:

•The average compensation for a CEO at a Planned Parenthood affiliate rose from $237,999 in 2015 to $255,523 in 2017 (a 7.4 percent increase).

•The total compensation paid to all affiliate CEOs increased from $13.3 million in 2015 to $14.3 million in 2017.

•The average compensation to top executives at Planned Parenthood Federation of America headquarters went from $389,514 in 2015 to $394,893 in 2017.

This increase at national headquarters would have been more, but PPFA CEO Cecile Richards saw her compensation reduced from $957,952 in 2015 to $744,833 in 2017. If we take Richards’ compensation out of the calculation, the remaining top executives’ average compensation went from $337,838 in 2015 to $365,731 in 2017 (a 7.5 percent increase).

It continues to be interesting that the highest paid CEOs are not from the largest affiliates. For instance, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte is PPFA’s largest affiliate, but its CEO, Linda Williams, ranks eighth ($403,814) in the list of highest paid executives. The highest paid of affiliate CEOs, Darrah Johnson of Planned Parenthood of Pacific Southwest ($523,677), actually works for the third largest affiliate.

The CEO report shows that, at Planned Parenthood, operating a supposed “non-profit” organization that supposedly provides health care to the poor, can be a very lucrative occupation. According to latest reports, anyone earning over $421,926 a year is in the top 1% of the population.

By that criterion, six of the Planned Parenthood CEOs are in the top one percent income bracket. If we add PPFA headquarters staff, then eight of the non-profit’s management qualify for top one percent status.

Finally, the top 10 percent of wage earners receive at least $170,500 a year. That means that the 13 highest paid corporate staff and 41 of the 56 CEOs are in the top 10 percent.

It is very, very profitable being in the leadership of the largest abortion chain in the nation.

  1. This makes me sick to my stomach.

  2. And they say crime (murder) doesn’t pay.

  3. What are comprable salaries for CEOs of other large non-profit organizations?

    • Mike M,
      Her salary for what she does my make your stomach churn, but it is not out of line for non-profit executives. Just because a group is a non-profit, charity or otherwise doesn’t mean that the people running them don’t make a competitive salary. Those who run large organizations make more than those who run smaller organization, etc. Salaries of other non-profit executives is easily available on the web.

  4. I debated Darrah Johnson on a televised program years ago over California parental notification initiative. All volunteers, the initiative was privately funded by generous donors, and got on the ballot three different election cycles. Each time we were very narrowly defeated with last minute millions spent by Planned Parenthood in deceitful television ads. Our salaries? Hopefully shaved off time in purgatory.

    Grace:
    to you and others who worked
    on parental notification with
    disappointing results in THIS world:
    “God doesn’t ask us to be successful –
    He only asks us to be faithful.” – Mother Theresa
    Thank you for your faithful service.
    “Well done, My good and FAITHFUL servant.” – Jesus

    • You’d think God would give his faithful servants some more help these days. Why be faithful if it’s a wasted effort and God doesn’t help?

    These folks are paid lots of money; however, the two sisters recently found to have taken a considerable sum of money from a Catholic elementary school also seemed to enjoy their stolen money.
