Atlanta, GA (September 1, 2009)- How do you determine competitive nonprofit salaries for recruiting new employees and retaining prized talent? How does your organization’s benefits compare to nonprofits of similar size and location? The Opportunity Knocks 2008/2009 National Nonprofit Wage and Benefit Report helps not only determine equitable and attractive salaries, but also assists in making a range of human resource decisions that can affect your organization’s ability to attract and keep employees, thus enabling you to pursue and fulfill your nonprofit’s mission.


This national report uniquely provides data on titles ranging from Executive Director through Receptionist, which enables organizations to see information beyond the top positions that are typically analyzed in state by state surveys.
