Rev. Al Sharpton received a massive raise through his National Action Network charity that's nearly doubled his pay packet to nearly $650,000 with his non-profit also shelling out $1million on private jets.
Sharpton, president and CEO of NAN, was compensated $348,174 by his charitable foundation, according to tax filings. He was also allocated $278,503 in bonuses and $22,117 in benefits, bringing his total compensation to $648,794.
That's a giant increase in pay for Sharpton, who's salary was $347,183, and did not include bonuses, two years ago (in 2020).
Of the $1million forked out on lavish transport, NAN paid $291,833 to Apollo Jets, a service which brokers private jets and helicopters - from Gulfstreams to Boeings - and partners with Talon Air, one of the largest charter operators in the US.
NAN also splashed out $650,134 on Carey International, a luxury car-with-chauffeur ride service so that the Revered could attend 'important' meetings.
