OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The CEO of Goodwill Omaha has resigned in the wake of an Omaha World-Herald investigation showing the charity’s top executives being paid more than Goodwills nationwide - a practice that drastically ate into funds for its job programs for the needy and disabled.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dPRofc ) that 64-year-old Frank McGree announced Friday his resignation and plan to take early retirement. McGree had led the Omaha charity for 30 years. Goodwill’s board accepted his resignation Friday.

The newspaper’s investigation showed McGree received total compensation of $933,444 in 2014.

Also, 13 of the nonprofit’s executives were paid more than $100,000 in 2014, so a significant portion of the $4 million generated from Goodwill’s stores in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa went to administrative costs instead of its job-training programs.
