At a time when the Susan J. Komen Foundation could do with some good press. Information about the the salary of the CEO, Nancy Brinker, has some donors seeing red.

According to NBC News, the Susan G. Komen Foundation announcement last week that it was canceling half of its 3-Day races next year, was at least partially due to its previous decision to stop providing funds to Planned Parenthood. Early last year, the foundation announced it would not be funding further grants for breast-cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood. The decision was met with a firestorm of controversy. A few days later Ms. Brinker reversed the decision to defund the organization.

Then, in August 2012, Komen announced she would be stepping down as CEO.

But again according to NBC, in the latest controversy, a full10 months later, Brinker not only continues to hold her position, but tax documents reveal that she received a 64 percent raise and now makes $684,000 a year, according to the charity’s latest available tax filing. In contrast, the CEO of the Red Cross, a much larger organization earns $500,000 per year.

The foundation argues the raise came in November 2010, prior to last year’s controversy and that Brinker has not had raises in succeeding years.

On the Susan J. Komen Foundation 3-Day Facebook page, the charity stated that the 2014 Susan G. Komen 3-Day will return to Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Michigan, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle and the Twin Cities. However, we are saddened to share that the 3-Day will not be returning to the following markets in 2014: Arizona, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

They noted the 2013 events would continue as planned. The Dallas/Fort Worth Event will be held November 1-3, 2013.
