The 2019 Wage and Benefit Study is half price for 2020!

When you’re setting salaries, the Wage & Benefit Survey for Southwestern PA Nonprofit Organizations can give you all the comparables you need.  We are deeply grateful for the 188 nonprofit organizations who took the time to fill out the 2019 survey and made it possible for us to report on over 9,000 local nonprofit employees.  Thank you!

This invaluable tool gives you all the information you need to comply with IRS requirements for setting compensation packages, to remain competitive in your own retention and succession planning, and to develop organization-wide salary charts.

This bi-annual survey adds depth to our collective nonprofit management knowledge base and is especially useful for:

  • The IRS 990 form for nonprofits to benchmark executive compensation against the market
  • Boards hiring new executive directors or seeking to fairly compensate current staff
  • Staff leaders seeking to bring equity to their salary administration

As we prepare to gather data for the 2021 edition, the cost of the 2019 survey has been cut in half, and is now just $100 for nonprofits with budgets under $2 million, and $150 for nonprofits with budgets over $2 million. Once purchased, the research can be shared with anyone within your organization. Nonprofits who participate in the survey receive the results for free.

Additionally, we will need your help to gather the new data this coming September. Once again, the survey report will be distributed to participants at no charge. Contact Carrie Tancraitor at 412-397-6003 or to find out how to participate.
