This interactive database provides detailed compensation figures for more than 10,000 employees at more than 900 of the nation’s largest charities. The data come from charities' IRS tax filings for 2016 or 2017, as indicated.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additions or corrections to this data.
Figures are for organizations that raise at least $35 million annually from private sources.
Charities must provide salary data for all employees who make more than $150,000 annually. They also must provide salary data for certain other “key” employees as defined by the IRS, who make $100,000 to $150,000 annually.
Charities must list all officers, directors, and trustees, key employees making at least $150,000, and the five highest-paid employees (other than directors and key employees) who make more than $100,000 for the period covered by each tax filing.
Compensation is categorized as follows:
- Base pay: base salary plus sick pay and employee contributions to a 401(k) or 403(b) plan
- Bonus pay: incentive pay and signing bonuses
- Nontaxable benefits: health and medical benefits, life insurance, housing provided by the employer, personal legal and financial services, dependent care, adoption assistance, tuition assistance, and cafeteria plans
- Other compensation: miscellaneous pay and benefits, including severance payments, tax gross-ups (money an employer provides an employee for taxes paid on benefits), vacation leave cashed out, debt forgiveness, fellowships, employer-provided vehicles and parking, housing payments, travel, meals, moving expenses, entertainment, spending accounts, and club dues. Vested deferred compensation, meaning money set aside in previous years that was paid out to the employee in the current year, can also be included. It may also include interest accrued on deferred compensation.

Apply multiple filters to analyze compensation at groups in multiple states or for multiple causes. Multiple filters of the same type (for example, Colorado and California) are additive (both sets are included). Filters of different types are restrictive (for example, Health and Colorado will yield only results that have both characteristics).
Only "CEO" and "VP" are presented as abbreviations. All other titles are spelled out. Title searches for abbreviations will attempt to match to the correct title. If you notice an error in a title, please let us know at email@example.com.
