The State of Our Profession: Highlights from AFP’s Latest Compensation and Benefits Study

Today AFP is releasing its latest Compensation and Benefits Study, which covers data and trends in both the U.S. and Canada from 2016.

You’ll find a lot of great information that you can use for yourself and your organization, and there’s a lot more covered in the survey than just salaries.

I’m especially excited to see the slow but steady growth of respondents over the years who are coming directly into the fundraising profession from school or university (from 11 percent in 2005 to 20 percent last year). That trend demonstrates how our profession is evolving and becoming a viable and prized career opportunity by many young people, and that we have a solid educational base of information and skills necessary for an individual to start a career in fundraising.

I do remain concerned about the salary gap that both the U.S. and Canada figures continue to show. The difference in average salaries for men and women fundraisers this year was $12,000 in the U.S. and $14,000 in Canada.

The AFP Diversity and Inclusion Committee is looking at the salary gap issue and will be creating a working group to develop messages, talking points and actionable items that chapters and members can use in their communities and organization to help eliminate the salary gap for fundraisers. AFP will also be reaching out to our sister organizations and others in the nonprofit sector to see how we can work together. I also encourage you to read this very good article by Mark Pittman about “Gender Equality in Salaries Starts With Us.”

I’m encouraged that three-quarters of respondents believe that inclusiveness is a priority for their organizations. Large majorities of fundraisers in both countries also believe that fundraising is understood and valued in their organizations, and are confident that their organization’s fundraising is effective.

The survey shows a strong, dynamic, and vibrant fundraising profession. We have challenges to face, but do so armed with much optimism about the future and the impact we can have.

I urge all of you to download the main survey here (free of charge), read the overviews at the beginning of the report (a lot of great information there), and use the charts and tables to help you plot your career moving forward. There also are detailed mini-reports you can buy that focus on specific job titles as well.

As always, let me know if you have any thoughts or comments you wish to share with me!
