  1. Here is a blog linked to by Captains Journal that you might want to add to your bloglist:
    https://www.pagunblog.com/

    In particular, https://www.pagunblog.com/2020/01/08/everytowns-finances/ writes about how roughly 50% of Everytown’s money comes from a small number of wealthy donors (names not disclosed on filings) and without it they would be much poorer:

    “So Everytown raised a record 67 million dollars in 2018, according to their Form 990. According to the Schedule B, 39 million of that was raised from one donor. … [friends] raised 4 million more dollars in million dollar donations. That takes us up to 43 million raised from rich assholes.
    …Everytown raised 47.2 million in donations over $5000, leaving about $20 million raised in increments lower than $5000. ”

    “Indeed, Everytown spent 2.4 million on fundraising. A generally acceptable return is $1 back for every 24 cents spent, so Everytown should have raised about 10 million just based on their fundraising spend.

    If the rich assholes disappeared … Everytown’s yearly take would be about 20 million. Ten million of that would be spoken for just in management expenses and fundraising, and the rest wouldn’t cover payroll. So they would be a very different organization with very different concerns were the big donors to disappear. I’d note that Everytown’s top paid exec is only pulling $350,000 (take note, Wayne), so they aren’t blowing a lot of money on execs.”
