Katie formed a team “Team Bailey” for the Buffalo JDRK Walk to Cure Diabetes at the Buffalo Zoo Sunday in honor of her Dad. Thanks to all of those in the family that donated to the team in honor of her Dad and Nana.
Just so you know..
“Everyone has specific targets they have to meet to make their money. But then why is it that many executives of diabetes non-profits (with the exception of the JDRF), gets paid based on goals and objectives that have nothing to do with finding a cure?
We just finished our latest report ” Are Non-Profit Executives Financially Incentivized to Deliver a Cure”, and our findings are pretty upsetting. Most of the CEO’s are rewarded on the performance of completely different criteria, such as advocacy, or how much fundraising they pull in. Finding a cure is a large part of every organization’s mission, so why is progress towards one not incentivized at all? If they’re going to get bonuses anyway, shouldn’t the bonuses be for work that helps cure diabetics, and not for how much fundraising they gain?”
Jeff Brewer’s (CEO) son has diabetes and his number one goal is to find a cure- money goes to research! Much better place to put your donation!
Way to go Katie!
