2016-2017 Nonprofit CEO Compensation Study

Print Friendly and PDF

Common question asked by nonprofit Boards: "How much should a nonprofit CEO get paid?" Common questions asked by donors: "Is that charity CEO over-compensated?" We at Excellence in Giving have to answer this question all the time for major donors our firm advises. And we have the data to do it.

Since we collected 75,000 fields of detailed organizational data over the last 2 years, we can now release an excerpt of our nonprofit CEO Compensation findings in 2018. Our study includes data from 372 nonprofits whose CEO compensation was analyzed according to staff size, annual expenses, CEO tenure, and geographic location. Here are the results.


Average nonprofit CEO pay in 2016-17: $138,815


Looking at a national average for CEO pay is virtually worthless. Organization size, location, and sector all greatly affect CEO compensation. For example, the highest nonprofit CEO salaries are found in Healthcare, and secondarily Education. Those numbers get skewed by large nonprofit hospital systems and big universities.

The biggest factor affecting CEO pay is Annual Expense. The average CEO at a charity with $750,000 in annual expenses makes $78,256 while the average CEO at a large charity spending over $50 million a year gets paid $313,150. Use the chart below to benchmark CEO pay at charities:
