Latest Update – Fair Pay Compensation Survey

Did you know you’ll receive a significant discount on the cost of the Fair Pay for Northern California Nonprofits: The 2019 Compensation & Benefits Survey report if you fill out their annual survey?

Then you’ll be able to check your organization’s pay scale against other NorCal nonprofits. Detailed information will provide breakdowns by size of organizational budget, geography, specific field of service and more. FYI, urban forest nonprofits fall under Conservation/Environment/Parks but you can also look at info for Community/Economic Development or other sectors.

The deadline to fill out the survey is February 8 – just do it!
