I also wrote a post about the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba. See "Cuba Money Trail: Tale of two Miami non-profits."
Several readers over the past few weeks had asked me to write something about a new award given to the FHRC.
As I looked into that, some other grant expenses caught my eye. The Directorio Democratico Cubano, a non-profit in Miami, reported to the IRS more than $13.5 million in expenses from 2005 to 2009.
Directorio expenses reported from 2007 to 2009 included:
- $913,166 for travel
- $2,278,713 for salaries, wages and employee benefits
- $330,704 for solidarity committee offices in Europe, and Central and South America
- $550,055 for program services in foreign countries
- Dominican Republic, $200,557
- Argentina, $126,412
- Mexico, $56,936
- Costa Rica, $58,988
- Czech Republic, $13,968
- Slovakia, $20,118
- Spain, $73,076
