#FollowTheMoney thread. How much did @womensmarch make in 2017? How much did its co-chairs make? I'm working on an @esquire column on the controversy of the Women's March & just received its 2017 IRS filing. I share here the top 10 findings.
1) This filing is for "@WomenMarch Inc." @neodifference is the fiscal sponsor for "Women's March Network & will not reveal financials. Women's March Inc. had total revenues of $2,544,074 in 2017.
2) The four co-chairs Linda Sarsour, Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez made a total $261,611 in income.
✅ Mari Lynn Foulger aka "Bob Bland" - $73,404
✅ Tamika Mallory - $70,5730
✅ Linda Sarsour - $69,927
✅ Carmen Perez - $47,710
3) @womensmarch Inc. earned $1,166,705 in merchandise sales, or 46% of total revenue in 2017.
4) "Where did the money go?" asks former @womensmarch DC chapter president @breathefree11 Mercy Morganfield. Follow her! She is a courageous voice in this controversy. For weeks, she has been pressing Women's March to reveal financials. She's a hero. TY Mercy. #Whistleblower
It’s important to note that this is just one source of income.
5) Re: salaries. It's impt to recognize at least 2/4 co-chairs @womensmarch Inc. likely had other income in 2017. Carmen Perez for example had income of $88,333 as president for @Gather4Justice in 2016. Gathering for Justice hasn't responded to several queries I have sent it.
6) Separately, Linda Sarsour was executive director of @MPower_Change. Hello, MPowerChange, could you please direct us to your 2017 990? Thank you.
Just to be clear: there are six board members for #WomensMarch. They were the only staff that received salaries. They voted on their own salaries?
