Do you give to charity?

I just found out Natuurmonumenten (Nature Monuments) has three directors that together earn €479,000 a year WTF | :WTF:
I'm supporting them for €8 a month, meaning almost 5000 people have to support them year round, like I do, just to pay these ridiculous salaries.
Just to put that into perspective, the average salary of the working population in the Netherlands is €36,900.
These directors make more than four times the average salary (the highest earner is close to five)!
So while people are volunteering and gifting for their cause they make four to five times the salary of those who do the gifting.
I get that these people have to earn a living to eat, but with "just" €80,000 they have a very good salary as well and it would leave €239,000 extra for THEIR charity.
That's almost 10,000 of the €25 donations they're asking now to restore the moorland.
It seems my gift is supporting rich CEO's rather than the cause I signed up for.
I might stop giving altogether and start a "charity" myself Dead | X|

Too bad most CEOs of "charity" make this kind of money.
There seem to be only a handful of CEOs who make below €100,000 (in the Netherlands)...
But at least they don't all have THREE CEOs making such money Dead | X|
