Higher Salaries at Nonprofits

Even though it’s based on 2014 data, this article shares that workers at nonprofits earn on average $7.86 more per hour than their counterparts at for-profits.

Though the money might not be the primary draw, employment in the US nonprofit sector—the largest employer after retail and manufacturing, according to the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies—is booming. In California, for example, nonprofit employment grew more than 18% from 2007 to 2016, versus 7.3% growth in for-profit sector, according to a new report from Work for Good, a nonprofit jobs board focused on nonprofit careers.

The leadership misconduct refers to company founder and former Artistic Director Tim Veach, who resigned in October after allegations of misconduct with two dance students. In March, Veach was found guilty of providing alcohol to a minor.
