Nonprofit Salaries and Wages Not Keeping Up with Inflation and Its Consequences

Nonprofit Salaries and Wages Not Keeping Up with Inflation and Its Consequences

"Despite the competitive hiring environment, nonprofit employees are worse off than they were two years ago, because salaries did not keep pace with inflation, and healthcare costs increased significantly through rising employee contributions, co-pays, and deductibles (costs borne mostly by the employees themselves)."

The troubling article linked above should concern all community leaders. #Nonprofits understand that addressing this requires:

  • Full coverage of real costs in government contracts

  • #Philanthropic willingness to support salaries, benefits, and professional development

  • Termination of the use of "overhead" as a measure of #nonprofit effectiveness
