Monograph: Executive Compensation in the Nonprofit Sector: A Focus on Arts and Cultural Organizations
Based on a study done by The Urban Institute on annual surveys conducted by the Chronicle of Philanthropy, this Americans for the Arts Monograph answers the following questions: how do executive compensation levels vary in the nonprofit universe; to what extent do organizational factors and reliance on donation and commercial revenues relate to executive compensation; what is the relationship between executive salaries and other types of compensation; and how do executive salaries vary within the nonprofit arts community.
Americans for the Arts’ Monograph series featured in-depth issue papers on topics that were of the greatest interest to our members and arts professionals at the time. They often still serve as excellent resources for best practices and historic reference for today’s issues. Monographs were produced from 1993–2010. Monograph from 2001-2010 are available for downloadable in PDF format our online store at a nominal fee for nonmembers but free to members. All monographs from 1993-2000 are available for free download via the National Arts Administration and Policy Publications Database.
