Financial Transparency

The Sustainable Economies Law Center values transparency and we want you to know that we use our funds mindfully, even while the organization has grown over the past six years. Here are some charts to help you understand our's growth, fundraising goals, and how we spend our money:


As of April 2016, our Center's projected 2016 budget is $1,174,007, which includes a goal to create an operating reserve. Here's our progress on raising those funds so far:

All staff at the Center earn the same salary. We have chosen to do this for many reasons, but one very good reason is to recognize that all staff work very hard and contribute importantly to our mission. Another reason we do this is to cultivate a sense of "ownership" among all staff. Each staff member makes $51,152 when working full-time, which is based on a regional living wage calculator for a one adult - one dependent household. Our compensation policy caps staff wages at this amount and guarantees a 1:1 pay scale ration for all staff. Learn more about our compensation policies here. Here are staff salaries for 2016:
