Executive Compensation at the Entertainment Industry Foundation

by Anne Paddock

The Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) that is primarily engaged in raising funds and making grants:  two functions that greatly depend on the ability of individuals to raise money and to review grant requests.

EIF raised about $60 million in 2016 and spent about $18 million or $31 out of every $100 raised on program, management, and fundraising. The remainder was spent on grants – many to organizations that make grants which can further dilute a donation made to EIF because program, management, and fundraising costs are deducted by both organizations before grants reach the intended program or research.

The 12 executives managing EIF were compensated $3.3 million:

  • $500,582:  Lisa Paulsen, President and CEO
  • $401,139:   Ed Rada, COO
  • $324,030:  Sung-Ha Poblete, President/CEO – SU2C
  • $291,289:  Susan Frank, Advisor to COO
  • $282,832:  Deborah Morrison, CFO
  • $253,739:  Kathleen Lobb, SVP, Commun. East Coast
  • $218,559:  Maurine Slutzky, VP Communications
  • $211,789:  Jane Rubinstein, VP, Communications
  • $206,225:  Catherine Outgen, SVP, Legal Affairs
  • $191,237:  Jennifer Kuntz, VP, Operations
  • $186,694:  Linda Mac Master, SVP, Business Development
  • $183,696:  Shawn Burke, VP, Controller

Of the 12 most highly compensated employees, 9 are women (75%) and 3 are men (25%).
