2010 Salaries for Nonprofit Jobs Now Available from Abbott, Langer Association Surveys
REDMOND, WA - July 12, 2010 - This year, more than ever, nonprofits need comparable data to make sure that their compensation levels match the external marketplace.
The IRS changed the reporting requirements on executive compensation for tax-exempt organizations on the Form 990 in 2008 and now the salaries, along with the data and the process used to set them, is easily available for review by the IRS and the public.
The newly released 2010 All Nonprofit Organizations Compensation Survey by Abbott, Langer Association Surveys provides market-based pay data for 174 benchmark jobs, ranging from support staff to executive positions.
Its 360+ pages include data covering almost 12,500 incumbents in nonprofit organizations from multiple states and the District of Columbia.
Examples of the US average salaries reported by survey participants for four benchmark jobs, effective March 31, 2010, included:
US Average Annual Salary
Social Services Aide
General Maintenance Supervisor
Although the above salaries are national averages for all nonprofits, breakouts are available by size (small and large) and by state.
Specific surveys for different types of nonprofit organizations (human services, religion-related, hospitals, etc.) are also available so that each nonprofit can select the most appropriate comparable data for its market.
Data from two other sources are also presented for each job title:
Nonprofit salary data from IRS Forms 990 and Department of Labor datasets, and
For-profit data from databases of ERI Economic Research Institute, used to develop ERI’s Assessor software (see www.erieri.com for more information).
The information provided for each job includes a job description, total compensation, mean/median, percentile ranges, bonuses, and demographics of the sample.
The information and the salary data from the different sources also includes 18 executive titles, thus providing nonprofits with the data they need to comply with the IRS rules on setting compensation, all with the purchase of one survey.
Nonprofits can order the 2010 All Nonprofit Organizations Survey that covers the size and location needed and/or with additional surveys for specific types of organizations at www.abbott-langer.com. Participation will be open on October 1, 2010 on the website for the 2011 survey and organizations that contribute salary data will receive a 50% discount on the survey purchased as well as a complimentary copy of the Executive Summary.
Another new Abbott, Langer report entitled 2010 Benefits in Nonprofit Organizations, Tenth Edition will also be of interest as it covers current health plan costs and benefit practices in nonprofit organizations. It is available for purchase at www.abbott-langer.com.
