2023 Wage and Benefit Survey of Southwestern Pennsylvania Nonprofit Organizations



Welcome to the 2023 Wage and Benefit Survey of Southwestern Pennsylvania Nonprofit Organizations, sponsored by the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management.

Your response to these questions will be compiled with those from many other nonprofit organizations, resulting in the publication of the 2023 Wage and Benefit Survey. 

This website uses advanced encryption technology to secure the data. Results will be reported in the aggregate so that no survey information can be traced to any particular individual or organization.

There are 7 pages of information to enter in this survey:
          1. About Your Organization
          2. Compensation & Employment Practices
          3. Paid Time Off Benefits 
          4. Insurance Benefits
          5. Retirement Benefits
          6. Executive Director/CEO Profile
          7. Compensation

You may enter your data at your convenience, through Friday, December 16.

As you go through the survey questionnaire, the information you enter is automatically saved as soon as you leave one page and continue to the next. Click on the "Save and continue survey later" link at the top of any page in order to receive an email with a link to return to your response. You can use that link to return to your response as often as needed through December 16. If you do not receive an email with the link, please contact Rita Haronian at or 510-645-1005. Rita will email you the link so that you can pick up where you left off rather than starting a new response.
