Report on US NFP Salaries
Wednesday, 29th September 2010 at 2:02 pm

US Not for Profit, GuideStar's annual compensation report on CEOs shows women are losing ground in the USA.

GuideStar USA has released its 10th annual GuideStar Nonprofit Compensation Report, which shows that the gender gap, which in previous years had narrowed, has actually increased.

Overall, women held 48 percent of the top jobs but received only 29 percent of the total compensation, down from 35 percent in 2007.

The 2010 GuideStar Nonprofit Compensation Report is an extensive review of key employee compensation practices across the entire GuideStar database of approximately 100,000 charitable organisations for 2008.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Women held 57 percent of CEO positions at organisations with expenses of $1 million or less but only 38 percent at organisations with expenses of greater than $1 million. These numbers were both slight increases over 2007.
  • A trend of the last few years toward larger median compensation increases for incumbent women CEOs continued to hold for 2008. This suggests that women in positions other than CEO are not making the steady gains seen among women CEOs.
  • The larger the organisation, the larger the increases in compensation for both male and female CEOs. For example, CEOs at organisations with budgets between $500 thousand and $1 million saw a median increase of 3.8 percent from 2007 to 2008, whereas those at organisations with budgets of greater than $50 million had a median increase of 5.1 percent. Percent increases at all sizes of organisations were generally higher in 2008 than they were in 2007.  
  • Health and science organisations had the highest overall median salaries followed by food, religion, and youth development organisations.
