Committee for Missing Children officials: David & Karen Thelen, $132,822
This Gwinnett County-based group raised $2.6 million in fiscal 2008. More than 86 cents of every dollar was spent on fund-raising. Another 5 cents went to the salaries of CEO David Thelen and board secretary Karen Thelen, his wife. That left 8 cents on the dollar to be spent on the group’s purported mission: distributing photos of missing children. Here’s the organization’s latest tax return.
