Nonprofit Executive Compensation Benchmarking

The nonprofit board’s responsibility is to insure that the compensation of its CEO is “fair and reasonable.” There is a relationship between CEO compensation and either expenses or endowment. While published data are important, they never tell the entire story and they are usually out of date.

Our benchmarking reports interpret and index all published data taken from the Form 990 or Form 990 (PF) and create a regression or trend line that compares executive compensation among a peer group either by budget size of the organization or asset size of a foundation. A comparability study will provide “safe harbor” for a board concerned about the IRS Intermediate Sanctions.
