New York Nonprofit Salary Information

There are few states that have as much diversity in the nonprofit sector as New York. From famous organizations such as Charity: Water in New York City, to the government-related nonprofits of the Capital region, there are plenty of opportunities in the Empire State.

That's why, for the 2012 Nonprofit Salary and Benefits Reports, The NonProfit Times released a dedicated report for New York nonprofits.

The 2012 Nonprofit Organizations New York State Salary and Benefits Report is the ideal guide for managers who want to make sure they are offering compensation in line with competitors. It stands to reason that a large charity in Manhattan will offer vastly different salaries and benefits to workers than in smaller regions of the state, which is why the report offers a baseline on salary and benefits so you will be in line with your peers.

As any successful nonprofit manager knows, salary is just half of the picture when it comes to compensation, especially with top-of-the-line jobs. That's why the New York Salary and Benefit Report lists the top executive perks given in the state. Additional vacation days and a car or car allowance were most common among New York's nonprofits, with more than half offering these perks to their top executives. It should be no surprise, then, that these positions have some of the lowest turnover rates of those surveyed for the report.

Other information included in the NY Salary and Benefits Report include:

  • Annual Salary Increases (executive and non-executive);
  • Base Salary and Total Cash Compensation data with percentile rankings for each position;
  • Total compensation costs as a percentage of operating expenses;
  • Employee profile data: number of full/part time; exempt vs. nonexempt;
  • Retirement Plans (maximum contributions, eligibility, plan offerings, participation rates);
  • Executive Employment Agreements (organizations offering, terms and conditions);
  • Part Time Employee Benefit Offerings;
  • Overtime Practices – exempt vs. non-exempt staff;
  • Flexible Spending Accounts (offerings, maximum contribution percentile rankings); and,
  • General Benefit Offering (covers 34 unique benefit programs).
This report can be purchased, along with the four other Salary Reports, on The NonProfit Times' online store.
