The 2013 Nonprofit Compensation and Benefits Report, the latest installment in a bi-annual report, studied the compensation practices of over 160 nonprofits in Central Florida. Margaret Linnane, executive director of Rollins Philanthropy, stated that salary disparity between male and female executives represents a continuation of trend found in their previous reports. She noted, though, that the economy seems to be improving, with 70 percent of nonprofits surveyed implementing some kind of pay raise.
"Almost two thirds of nonprofits reported increased budgets and salaries, especially in the development director field," said Linnane. "There was also a higher turnover rate for employees seeking new jobs and considering retirement. These factors indicate a recovering economy, which we haven’t seen in the reports for some time."
The average pay for all CEOs/Executive Directors in the sample was $99,868 per year; for men, the average annual CEO/Executive Director pay was $115,731; for women, the average annual CEO/Executive Director pay was $87,693. While a majority (57 percent) of those surveyed was women, a greater number of men are found in the CEO/Executive Director positions of the largest organizations, which tend to pay higher wages.
