Layoffs At Focus – Group’s Nonprofit Status Resolved

Daniel Gonzales

September 11th, 2007

Says the Colorado Springs Gazette:

Focus on the Family announced Monday that it is laying off 30 employees and reassigning 15 others.

It also announced that founder James Dobson had been cleared of accusations that he jeopardized the group’s nonprofit status by endorsing Republican candidates.

Most of the layoffs are in the organization’s Constituent Response Services department that answers mail and telephone requests.

A drop in projected revenue played a part in the layoffs, and the growth of e-mail and Internet-based communications is behind the reassignments, said Gary Schneeberger, vice president of communications.

Farther down in the article the IRS’s ruling is explained:

The IRS ruled that Dobson was acting as an individual and not on behalf of Focus in his endorsement of political candidates.

I wonder how much FotF monetarily bolsters up Exodus and, of course, the Truth Wins Out conferences.
