Nonprofit CEO waived some pay after compensation criticized

A recent investigation by The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer into Franklin Graham’s soaring compensation prompted the evangelist to give up much of his pay at the two Christian charities he leads. As president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, Graham received total compensation of $1.2 million last year. He was paid more than any other leader of an international relief agency based in the U.S. – including eight with larger budgets. Days after the Observer presented its findings, Graham said he would forgo future contributions to his retirement accounts and do without pay at BGEA.
