Executive Compensation 2014

Charity executives of big nonprofits and foundations are beginning to win bigger raises after a long run when the median annual increases did little better than keep up with inflation, according to The Chronicle’s annual compensation survey.

Among the 82 organizations for which The Chronicle has 2011 and 2012 data, the median change in salary was 4.9 percent.

Since the financial crisis ended in 2009, charities have nudged up compensation for their top executives only modestly, on average by about 3 percent a year.
