The 2022 survey report is here!
More than 700 nonprofit organizations participated, making it the largest and most robust in the survey's 44-year history.
As our communities continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, nonprofit managers navigate uncertain economic conditions related to pay rates, employee retention, benefits and employment policies.
The survey will also help your organization find out how the local nonprofit community is responding to current economic conditions. Here are some questions the survey can help nonprofit managers answer:
The survey serves all kinds of nonprofits in all 48 Northern California counties, from Del Norte County in the far northwest to Inyo County in the far southeast.

"In creating three year strategic plans, the Fair Pay Nonprofit survey has served as an excellent planning tool.

"Determining compensation is never an easy task. Access to an up-to-date, comprehensive guide as a reference has been instrumental for our organization. Having accurate data, defined by region, has allowed us to provide competitive offers to new hires and existing employees. We refer to the guide regularly and consider it a great value."

"We have relied on the Fair Pay Report every year to determine how our salary ranges track to other organizations of similar size. It helps inform us on budgeting for raises and salary adjustments. Our organization has grown significantly over the last couple of years. In 2021 we did a full HR audit to ensure we are keeping up with the Bay Area trends. The Fair Pay report was so helpful. It was great to review how we stack up to other organizations for salary,job titles and descriptions, benefit packages, holiday and vacation time. We are beyond grateful that this data is collected annually and presented in such a useful way. It also helped us think about how to organize and present our recommendations to the executive team making decisions. Thank you!"
