Non-Profit Workers Pay Increases 8.4% From 2011

Tom Bailey of Total Compensation SolutionsWorkers at not-for-profit organizations are generally feeling a little wealthier this year as compared to a year ago. They’ve seen their base pay increase by an overall average of 8.4 percent compared to 2011 according to a new study published by Total Compensation Solutions (TCS).

“This increase is significantly higher that we have seen over that last two study cycles 2008 to 2009 and 2009 to 2010,” says study project manager Tom Bailey. “The increases for the previous two study cycles reflected the severity of the economic recession with marginal increases of 2.4 and 1.5 percent respectively.”

The not-for-profit sector was hit particularly hard during the recession. Many organizations saw their funding cut or dry up all together. These increases are hopefully a good indicator that the economy is improving and that not-for-profits are seeing their funding restored. “These organizations provide essential services to communities across the country and this may be the start of an encouraging trend,” says Bailey.
