Perhaps we do not show up well in the donations department because we're taxed - or perhaps, we are constantly being taxed - by the fees for everything.
One might call that the underground taxation system. There is only so much a pay cheque can be stretched, so it is that, with a fees for everything, there is so little money left to do any donating with.
Most charities have the head honcho very well paid, indeed. In excess of six figure salaries are the norm, it seems.
By way of contrast, the head of the Salvation Army is paid something under $15,000 per annum.
