April 23, 2018

The 2018 survey report was published on April 13th by Oakland-based Nonprofit Compensation Associates (NCA).

With 610 participating nonprofits, reporting on over 33,000 employees, the 2018 survey is the largest and most robust in its 40-year history. 2018 is also the sixth year in a row the survey broke its participant record!

77% of the 2018 survey’s participants (up from 72% in 2017) see hiring challenges in the year ahead and they foresee increased competition from their colleagues and businesses to attract and retain the “best and brightest” employees.

Your organization will need the wealth of information produced by the 2018 survey to compete effectively on this ever-changing playing field, including invaluable information about compensation, base pay, employee benefits, salary increases, personnel policies, as well as data that larger nonprofits can use to justify to the IRS the compensation they pay their executive employees.

The survey serves nonprofit organizations in all 48 Northern California counties, a vast geographic area from Del Norte County in the far northwest to Inyo County in the far southeast. And NCA makes special efforts to serve both larger and smaller nonprofit organizations, as well as those from both urban/suburban and rural counties. To see how they do it, visit:
