At the request of another reader, here is the information I was able to glean from People’s Memorial Assocation’s 2006 tax return, obtained from Guidestar and attached here:  peoples-memorial

$ 282,516   total expenses for 2006
$ 108,822   employee expense (salary, retirement, benefits, payroll taxes, etc.)
$173,694  to spend on program expenses

$ 282,516  total expenses for 2006
$ 208,099  revenue
74,417  loss for the year

20,417  dues paid to the national FCA (Mr. Slocum’s group)

How do they compare with the national FCA for the same time period?

PEOPLE’S MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION
38.5% of total expenses spent on employee salary/benefits/taxes
52.1% of revenue spent on employee salary/benefits/taxes

NATIONAL FUNERAL CONSUMERS ALLIANCE 
70.6%
of total expenses spent on employee salary/benefits/taxes
84.9% of revenue spent on employee salary/benefits/taxes

 How about comparing them to the Red Cross?  Here’s their 2006 tax return:  red-cross

AMERICAN RED CROSS
