All the religions of the world ask for donations to survive and the Church of Scientology is no different than the rest. They request donations for many things, like the IAS, Narconon, CCHR, etc. But what happens to your donations? What is the money actually spent on?
Where does the money go? Does it go to the poor? Does the Cof$ does The Scientology Church do charitable activities? No. They have spent $ O .OO on charity.
When I was in Scientology, I asked once if David Miscavige was accountable for the money the Church was receiving and if I could see a statement that showed how was the money distributed. I was told that that was not pubic information and it was insinuated that I would go to Ethics for even asking.
I was surprised at that reaction, since most Churches or corporations publish a financial information statement at the end of the fiscal year, so the members what their hard earned donations are used for.
Not so with the Cof$ since David Miscavige has never given a public statement regarding how money has been distributed or spent.
He has made claims of what it would go too if given, although considering donations for the new “Super power building” should have paid for it three times over by now, and its still unfinished! All considered, we can safely assume that there are A LOT of financial irregularities in the Cof$.
A lot of Scientologist make great sacrifices to pay for services. Some even have to work at two jobs to make ends meet, while others live in abject poverty so that they can pay for services. Sea Org members give their sweat, blood and tears for what usually shows up with little compensation if any in the end.
When the “Ideal Org” project was launched, I have it from a responsible witness from the Seattle Org, that people were being reged to take out 2nd mortgages on their homes so that they could donate to the cause and have their names listed as contributors. All for no exchange what so ever.
I was told that the Members of the Seattle Org worked and donated to purchase this building and as soon as this was done, the ED Mrs. Volkman was demoted to HCO expediter and replaced by a 22 year old Austrian Sea Org Kid. At the same time her husband, the HCO Sec was declared, thrown off post and died 2 months later of Cancer. Many of their family and children are on staff there as well. What a great thanks for a Job Well Done on acquiring a “Saint Hill” size building. The building is now renovated and owned by the Church. Cof$ contribution to this? $O. OO !
In the meantime, while this dedicated slave labor force and donations for building purchases and renovations are being demanded from the public all over the world, thinking they are working for a greater good; DM allegedly dines in the Eiffel Tower in Paris and other places across Europe.
So, Being knowledgeable of DM’s atrocity’s and a desire to hold him and his minions accountable, I decided to investigate the matter myself. I could never find out where all that money went until I read Marc Headley’s, book, “Blown for Good.” A best seller about his experiences inside the cult. In this book he published this list of where some of the money goes.

Total costs of just some of the crap bought or ordered by David Miscavige in the recent 10 years…
Two Hundred and Five Million, Seven Hundred and Twenty Five Thousand Dollars and obviously no sense at all.
The Look on little David’s face when he sees this information posted all over the Internet?
Now we can see why the Sea Org and Staff are paid so little. David Miscavige claims that he is in the Sea Org and has the rank of Captain. I think he is just rank period. This is Just a short list of what David Miscavige has spent money on. In last 10 years this would be enough to pay all Sea Org members around the world a very grand income, health benefits and retirement! What is the Sea Org retirement? Being tossed to the curb with no regard as no longer useful to the church. Hows that for a “humanitarian” religious corporation.
Those are not the only expenses… Oh no, wait a second…
Karen de la Carriere, Class XII auditor, told me recently that when Debbie Cook was the “Captain” of the Flag Service Org, she was scooping in $3 million a week for David Miscagive for some 25 years. The amount collected over that 25 years would look something like this…
(Please see the chart above for more reality on this number. That is One Million Dollars, Three Thousand and Nine Hundred Times ! )
When she left the SO $60,000 was used to SHUT HER UP.
This is now the current way the SEA Org hides the dirt. They are paying off 5 figures for SILENCE. They sign a contractual agreement with a lot of lawyers and legalese to take the money and be quiet about Internal Sea Org matters.
Of course we do have to be fair and admit that some money supports the expenses of the INT BASE and other management as we would expect. Although the diet and berthing quality of Sea Org members is still in question.
Marc adds to the list the actual operating costs and liability above high priced lawyers, other legal experiences and paying off law suites, cant be all that much comparatively.
He mentions as well that it is also known and understood that part of the money goes through OSA for Private Investigators. Like this one they used at CCI who harasses those who do not agree with the criminal activity. If anyone recognizes this character, please contact me.
Marc mentions this in his book; “Of course it’s also understood that some of the money goes to former Clearwater and Los angeles Police Officers, as well as other X-Cops that are on the Payroll.”
David Miscavige can burn money as he pleases, because there is no accountability of his actions. Common speculation is that he considers the Money his own and that HE IS THE CHURCH, Members be dammed!
“Time waits for no Man” little David.
And your clock is ticking itself away …….
