Valuing Our Nonprofit Workforce 2017

Valuing Our Nonprofit Workforce is a regional survey on nonprofit compensation and benefits from organizations in Southern New England, Westchester County, NY and adjoining communities.

2017 Compensation Report

From November 2016 to February 2017, TSNE, in partnership with regional sponsors and supporters, reached out to nonprofits across Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Southeastern New York State and adjoining communities to learn about their organizations’ compensation and benefits practices. We are very happy to provide the interactive 2017 database (link below) detailing salaries paid to employees in hundreds of positions in different types of nonprofits. Our previous full survey reports, including benefits, have been a great success and accessed by more than 60,000 users. Because of the financial support of many of our Leaders, Champions, and Patrons, the databases and reports are available to all for free.
