The 2016-17 Salary & Benefits Survey for Greater Kansas City Regional Nonprofit Organizations & Associations
The Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership of the University of Missouri-Kansas City's Henry W. Bloch School of Management, Support Kansas City, Nonprofit Connect, the Mid-America Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Kansas City Society of Association Executives (KCSAE) have formed a collaborative partnership to conduct the Salary & Benefits Survey of Greater Kansas City Regional Nonprofit Organizations & Associations - the only one of its kind in Kansas City! Legally, politically, and ethically, it is more important than ever for nonprofit agencies to use research-based information to establish, benchmark, and defend their salaries and benefits.
This Salary Survey is the tool that provides your nonprofit - and all nonprofits in the Kansas City metro region - with these three benefits.
- Matching your salaries and benefits to the local nonprofit employment market ensures that your compensation practices are competitive for hiring and retaining the best people while still being responsible with your agency's limited resources.
- Benchmarking your salaries and benefits levels ensures that you are being fair to your staff when determining an appropriate level of compensation.
- Basing key executive salaries, benefits, and perquisites on the results of a research-based salary survey provides your agency with strong legal and political protection for your decisions. Nonprofit regulatory authorities and many funders are paying more attention to the legitimacy of salaries and benefits that nonprofits are providing and the best defense for your salary decisions is the use of a legitimate, well-researched salary survey that is representative of your hiring market.
