Peggy Outon Featured in Chronicle of Philanthropy article on CEO Gender Gap

We’re pleased to share a recent article from The Chronicle of Philanthropy, featuring Peggy Outon as well as Bob Orser and Rita Haronian, our research partners for this survey, discussing improvement in the nonprofit gender gap. Your participation in this vitally important research makes these stories possible!

As you already know, the Wage and Benefit Survey of Southwestern PA Nonprofits has provided information about regional salary and benefits since 2000. This data is crucial for valid decision-making and for Form-990 compliance.  We need nonprofits of all sizes, budgets and years of service to gather a comprehensive dataset.

Thanks to the generosity of the RK Mellon Foundation, the final survey results are available at NO COST for nonprofits who participate. The purchase price for non-participants is $200.

The deadline is November 11.  The survey can be found online at
