2020 Foundation Benefits and Salary Survey

2020 Foundation Benefits and Salary Survey

During 2020, CNJG gathered salary and benefits information from our members to generate our 2020 New Jersey Philanthropy Benefits & Salary Summary Report. Members tell us that this report is one of the most important and effective benchmarking tools for our field. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, a statistically-significant number of philanthropic organizations completed our Benefits Report. We are grateful to those that completed either or both of the surveys, which are a major investment of time, to help us gather this useful data.

The report consists of two sections:

CNJG Benefits Survey
CNJG and our members wanted specific questions about the benefits offered to their employees, board, and more. Therefore, CNJG created our triennial Benefits Survey that will gather this comprehensive data specific to New Jersey’s grantmaking community. We are pleased that we were able to ask for board and staff demographic data for the first time in this year’s survey. As more attention is focused on racial equity in our work, it is helpful to benchmark this data in graphical form. We hope it sparks conversation at your organization.

Council on Foundations (CoF) Salary Survey
The salary survey was administered by our partners, the Council on Foundations. This annual nationwide effort by CoF and other Philanthropy-Serving Organizations across the country, benchmarks the salaries of employees at foundations, corporate giving programs, and other philanthropic organizations. CNJG encourages every member eligible to complete this survey each year. Access Frequently Asked Questions about the survey.
