The 2014 Grantmakers Salary and Benefits Survey Is Now Open

This year, the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers is once again partnering with the Council on Foundations and our Forum Network colleagues at regional associations across the country to encourage participation in the 2014 Grantmakers Salary and Benefits Survey. This invaluable benchmarking tool is designed specifically to collect compensation data for positions at community, private (family and independent), public and corporate foundations, and other staffed grantmaking entities. This annual survey is one of the most important and effective resources for the field and we encourage you to participate. It is through this survey data that CNJG will be able to produce an update to our last Mid Atlantic Foundation Benefits & Salary Summary Report.  To learn more and take the survey contact or feel free to contact Theresa Jacks for additional information.  The deadline for the survey is July 18th.
