As a longtime person with AIDS and AIDS watchdog, I asked the San Francisco AIDS Foundation to provide me with a copy of their 2012 IRS 990 filing.

The IRS 990 form all nonprofits must make available to the public when so requested, is a valuable accountability tool.

I want to see how much their executive director and other top executives are making, because it's important to follow the money.

Here's the salary info:

Neil Giuliano, executive director

Bob Rybicki, program director

Judith Auerbach, science director (retired)

Barbara Kimport, development director

James Loduca, communications director

Jonathan Zinman, finance director

Ernest Hopkins, federal affairs director

Total compensation amount paid to the seven top executives: $1,328,000.

Those pay levels are quite high and I'd like to see the pay cut and the money spent on direct services for people with AIDS, like hot meals and rental housing vouchers.
