Take Advantage of the 2-for-1 Offer:

779 nonprofit organizations, reporting on more than 40,000 jobs, participated in the 2023 survey, making it among the largest and most comprehensive in the survey's 45-year history! Here's how your organization can now benefit from what we consider to be the best survey of its kind:

  • Current, local compensation data on more than 200 jobs often found in nonprofit organizations throughout Northern California, including the metropolitan areas of the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento
  • Base pay levels and bonus/incentive pay for each job with details by annual operating budget, location within Northern California, number of employees and primary field of service
  • Employee benefits in detail: paid time off, insurance, retirement
  • Salary increases over the past year and expected during the next year
  • Policies with respect to on-call work, overtime, shift differentials, pay for bilingual skills, introductory periods, performance reviews, DEI practices and more.

The survey also helps your agency find out how the local nonprofit community is coping with current economic conditions. Here are some questions the survey can help nonprofit managers answer:

  • For what kinds of jobs are nonprofits having difficulty hiring and retaining employees?
  • Are nonprofit employees working remotely, in person, or a combination of both?
  • A tight labor market, high costs, and pandemic-related impacts to the workplace present challenges for nonprofit employers who manage their organizations’ compensation and benefits policies.

And if that's not enough incentive for you, consider this:

On the IRS Form 990, the IRS has standardized reporting to make comparing salaries easier and requires charities to provide information about the process they use to set the salaries of employees who receive $150,000 or more in total compensation.

The survey will help you navigate through this process and will be a primary tool to help you document the rationale you use to set the salaries you pay your executives.

Conducting your organization's own compensation and benefits survey to satisfy IRS requirements could cost you a small fortune. A much better alternative is to acquire Fair Pay for Northern California Nonprofits: The 2023 Compensation & Benefits Survey Report for a fraction of this amount.
