2009 CEO Compensation Study Released

Our site users have the opportunity to post comments about their favorite – and least favorite – charities that are listed on the Charity Navigator website. Perhaps the most frequent comment we see relates to executive compensation. Individual donors are fed up with seeing outlandish salaries paid to the leaders of nonprofits around the country!

While ultimately it is up to the donor to decide what they feel is appropriate pay for staff at the organizations they are considering supporting, Charity Navigator recently released a study of the charities listed on the site investigating executive compensation in depth. Understanding some of the factors that influence CEO pay and learning about average pay across the charity world can help you make an informed decision as a donor. You can watch our short video to hear about the findings from CEO and President Ken Berger.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
