Valuing our Nonprofit Workforce:
2017 Compensation & Benefits Survey for Nonprofits in Connecticut, Massachusetts,
New York State, Rhode Island and Adjoining Communities


This survey is designed for organizations with at least one paid employee. Your response to these questions will be compiled with those from many other nonprofit organizations, resulting in the publication of the survey report, which is planned for the spring of 2017. The report of compensation and benefits practices for small to medium to larger nonprofits in and around southern New England will be available to all - free of charge once published. Therefore, your time and thought given to complete the survey will help to create a body of knowledge that is greatly useful to nonprofits just like yours.

There are seven pages of information to enter in this survey:
          1. About Your Organization
          2. Compensation & Employment Practices
          3. Paid Time-Off Benefits
          4. Insurance Benefits
          5. Retirement Benefits
          6. Executive Director/CEO Profile
          7. Compensation

The time required to complete the questionnaire depends on the number of employees at your organization and your access to current compensation data and policies. Matching your organization's jobs with the  job descriptions contained in the survey will be the most time-consuming part of the process for most participants.

You may enter your data at your convenience, through Wednesday, December 14  Monday, January 16 (extended deadline). Please contact Rita Haronian at 510-645-1005 or survey@nonprofitcomp.com if you think you may need more time.

Once you start and save your response, you will be able to return to finish it at a later date. Click the "Continue survey later" link to receive a email with the link to return to the survey response that you have begun. You can use that same link to return as often as you need to.
