Over at the PEN NewsBlast, they’re worried about how to get more folks into public service. Me, I just want to know how much people make. Government salaries have long been public record, and apparently now you can get at least some salary information for nonprofits and foundations from GuideStar by looking at organization’s IRS form 990. Ever wondered what Wendy Kopp makes, or your local program officer? Who’s the highest-paid education ED? I don’t know yet. But it’s fun looking around on a hot Friday afternoon.
