Salaries in D.C. nonprofits rise

 | 

Virtually all nonprofit employers surveyed recently in the Washington, D.C., area awarded salary increases in 2006, and more than eight in 10 are planning to increase pay again next year, a new study says.

Nine in 10 gave pay raises across the board, says the “DC Salary Survey 2006,” conducted by Professionals for NonProfits, with seven in 10 of those increases for cost-of-living, and more than eight in 10 also awarding merit increases.

The study also analyzed salary ranges for various job positions and found that presidents of associations and international and health-care organizations earned from $80,000 to $100,000 at groups with budgets of less than $2 million, to $250,000 to $300,00 for groups with budgets greater than $50 million.

Salary ranges were similar for presidents of social-service and arts-and-culture groups, as well as educational institutions.

Development directors of small associations and international and health-care groups earned $60,000 to $70,000, the study says, while those at the largest organizations earned $120,000 to $140,000.

Small educational institutions, social service providers and arts and culture groups paid their development directors $60,000 to $70,000 and the biggest organizations paid $110,000 to $120,000.
