Are we paying competitive salaries to retain our employees?

How do we compare to those at similar local organizations? What about bonuses and incentive pay?

Are more organizations planning to increase their salaries next year?

How do pay levels for male and female executive directors compare?


This resource will help you answer those questions. It provides vital insights into employee retention, turnover, paid-time-off (PTO), health insurance, retirement, and more. An organizational benchmarking tool, our last report compiled information on over 8,000 salaries from organizations with budget sizes ranging from less than $100,000 to more than $100 million. 147 job titles in our sector were covered like CEO, Chief Operating Officer, Development Director, thrift store manager, volunteer coordinator, artistic director, and more.

One of our participants in the 2015 survey shared “I can’t understand why any non-profit would not want to participate. The information provided is very valuable as a management tool to justify compensation and benefits.”
