Time to fill out the salary survey!

We are beginning data collection for the 2020 Salary Survey Report for Greater Kansas City Regional Nonprofit Organizations & Associations. We have chosen to start a little early this year because of the pandemic and stay at home orders. Some nonprofit organizations are very busy now serving those in need or on the frontline of the pandemic others are not as busy currently but will be when social distancing guidelines are lifted or reduced.  We want to give nonprofits and associations a wider window this year to participate due to the variety in workload timing and changes.

We are beginning to analyze the data.  If you want to participate we will be accepting surveys for a few more days.


The salary and benefits survey reports are prepared on a biennial basis and are released on alternating years. The Salary Survey Report focuses on salaries, wages and compensation practices and the Benefits Survey Report focuses on employment benefits, such as paid time off and insurance, provided by nonprofit organizations and associations in the Kansas City region.

These reports can help your organization:

  • Establish compensation and benefits practices that are competitive in the regional nonprofit sector.
  • Benchmark your compensation and benefits to ensure your practices are fair and appropriate.
  • Defend your compensation and benefits practices using a legitimate, research-based survey.

These reports were researched and written by Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership with support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in conjunction with our collaborating partners:

  • Kansas City Society of Association Executives
  • The Greater Kansas City Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals
  • Nonprofit Connect
  • Support KC
