Not-For-Profit base pay increased by an overall average of 8.4% compared to last Year according to a new study published by Total Compensation Solutions (TCS). “This increase is significantly higher that we have seen over that last two study cycles 2008 to 2009 and 2009 to 2010” says study project manager Tom Bailey. “The increases for the previous two study cycles reflected the severity of the economic recession with marginal increases of 2.4% and 1.5% respectively.”

The not-for-profit sector was hit particularly hard during the recession. Many organizations saw their funding cut or dry up all together. These increases are hopefully a good indicator that the economy is improving and that not-for-profits are seeing their funding restored. “These organizations provide essential services to communities across the country and this may be the start of an encouraging trend” says Bailey.

The 2011/2012 Not For Profit Compensation Survey is the 9th edition of Total Compensation Solutions’ not-for-profit survey. The survey reports compensation data for 72 positions from 678 organizations in the not-for-profit sector.
