Print Friendly, PDF & Email

January 23, 2018 

It’s time to participate in the survey that serves all kinds of nonprofits in all 48 Northern California Counties.

600 nonprofit organizations, reporting on over 33,000 jobs, participated in the 2017 survey, published by Oakland-based Nonprofit Compensation Associates (NCA), making it the largest and most robust in the survey’s 39-year history, and the 5th year in a row the survey broke its participant record!

72% of the 2017 survey’s participants 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 valuable information about compensation, base pay, employee benefits, salary increases and personnel policies, as well as data that larger nonprofits can use to justify to the IRS the compensation they pay their executive employees.
