The 2013 Power And Influence Top 50

Sixteen years ago today The NonProfit Times released the first edition of the Power and Influence Top 50. The report listed the 50 nonprofit executives that we determined were at the top of their field. Since then, there have been many multiple-time honorees and some new ones.

With this year's edition, there is quite a bit of turnover.

The 2013 Power and Influence Top 50, included in the August 1 edition of NPT, features 18 first-time honorees. In addition, there are three returning executives who will be returning to our September Power and Influence Top Gala in Washington, D.C., after some time away. The evening’s keynote will be national commentator Juan Williams.

Some of the new faces in this year's list include:

  • James (Jim) Manis, the Mobile Giving Foundation;
  • Jacqueline Novogratz, Acumen;
  • Anthony D. Romero, American Civil Liberties Union;
  • Vanessa Kirsch, New Profit Inc; and,
  • Chris Anderson, Sapling Foundation/TED
You can view the full list by clicking here.

Of course, the Power and Influence Top 50 is not the only part of the August 1 issue. Other major articles include a piece on retaliation lawsuits, restructuring at the Girl Scouts, and how World Wildlife Fund and other organizations handle compressed workweek schedules.

UPDATE: The deadline has been extended! Surveys completed by August 31st will be entered to win a Kindle Fire HD. Start the 2013 Salary and Benefits Survey today!

The nonprofit executive gets well-deserved credit for the success of the organization but, as is often the case, those below the positions of power also have an important role to play. As a result, it should come as no surprise that they are well-compensated for their work.

As we draw closer to the deadline -- July 26th -- to complete the 2013 Salary and Benefits Survey, we thought this would be a good time to show more of the data that comes from your participation. Below are 12 administrative positions and their salaries from the 2012 Salary and Benefits Report. That report would not have been possible had it not been for the participation of the 1,000 plus participants who took the time to complete the survey.

Here are the 12 positions:

  • Administration Director -- $57,465
  • Administrative Assistant, Intermediate Level -- $31,285
