The Goods: Non-Profit Leaders Raking In Millions

Leave a Reply


You’d be surprised how much some in the non-profit world make.

Working in education or the arts won’t typically compete with lucrative career tracks in business or law.  But there are a small number of non-profit leaders making millions of dollars each year.

For example, Glenn Lowry, Director of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, made $2.7 million, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Other highlights include:

  • The median change in nonprofit CEO pay from 2009 to 2010:  7% increase
  • The median CEO pay at these big organizations in 2010: about $360,000
  • Nonprofit hospitals have the highest median CEO pay: more than $830,000
  • Social service charities have the lowest median CEO pay: about $220,000
  • At 57 of the organizations surveyed, someone other than the CEO was the highest-paid employee – e.g., investment managers, doctors, and major college athletics coaches

Nothing wrong with folks being paid well; in fact it must be encouraged for the exemplary performance; however, this is one reason why I won’t give freebie images to an organization simply because they call themselves “non-profit”.

Here is my related post on giving away images for free.
