If you accept the premise that better human resource management practices are of vital importance to face the challenges of our communities’ futures, it becomes clear that long-term sustainability and staff retention with competitive wages are inextricably linked. Some organizations’ responses are to do more job advertising while others are adding HR staff, outsourcing more staff recruiting, and/or seeking ways to expand compensation and benefits. This is the fourth edition of the Northeast Indiana Nonprofit Salary Survey, brought to you by the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne, United Way of Allen County, and the Alliance for Human Services of Northeast Indiana builds on past reports from 2012, 2014, and 2019.

This survey covers sixteen of the common leadership, administrative, and program positions with responses from 153 area nonprofits. We were pleased to partner with the Charitable Advisors team, from Indianapolis, once again to assemble this report. We hope these survey results will provide leaders of nonprofit organizations from all service sectors and all sizes with a valuable set of tools to seriously explore compensation and benefits with the ultimate goal of attracting and retaining the talent necessary to achieve your missions.
