Nonprofit covered nearly $1.9 million in personal expenses

A review of federal tax records by Christopher Baxter of The Morning Call (Allentown, Pa.) found that now-former leaders of a nationally prominent nonprofit with close and growing ties to Easton, Pa. improperly used nearly $1.9 million from the group's tax-free coffers for personal expenses between 2003 and 2008. The Nurture Nature Foundation, headquartered in New York City and owner of several properties in Easton, disclosed in the tax filing that two directors used foundation money for personal benefit in violation of the tax code. At the top of the list is famed professional arbitrator and philanthropist Theodore W. Kheel, who received $1,269,340 for personal expenses.
