Charitable organizations range from those who work for religion or the arts to those who work for education or the environment. Some of the the largest and well-known charitable organizations have CEOs of varying fields make salaries upwards of five figures.
Topping out the category of Animal Protection is the Wildlife Conservation Society's Steven E. Sanderson. The Wildlife Conservation Society, founded in 1895, has roughly 500 conservation projects in 60 countries. Its mission is clear: to save wildlife and wild places across the globe. This endeavor racks up expenses totaling $206,097,389. In 2012, Sanderson was compensated $787,747. This is just .38 percent of the expense total.
