Nonprofit Compensation & Benefits Study

Leadership Council is delighted to welcome back VonLehman CPA & Advisory Firm - now Dean Dorton as Presenting Sponsor of our 2024 Nonprofit Compensation & Benefits Study. They have sponsored this biennial study since 2018.


We are working with Assured Partners to offer an affinity health plan option to nonprofits. This is a self-funded plan with added stop-loss coverage. As a self-funded plan, it is not bound by Affordable Care Act rules and so health histories may be required and not all agencies may qualify. We are working with Assured Partners to provide coverage for agencies with 5 or more participating staff members. A backup option is an ICHRA (Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangement) which is an agency-funded health benefit. With an ICHRA, agencies determine a set budget to reimburse their employees for health insurance (pre-tax), and employees buy the plan that works best for them.  

We have worked diligently to respond to requests for help in this area. OneSource Center and Leadership Council are working together to offer this affordable health care option to our members. Health insurance is a complicated area which our partners at Assured Partners can more fully explain. Learn more about the Fortress Plans Program Overview or contact Nick Beatty, Vice President of Employee Benefits, for more information.

The Leadership Council for Nonprofits has partnered with UST since 2007 to help our members better manage their unemployment claims, maintain compliance, and streamline day-to-day operations.

"We’ve experienced two claims in the past 10 years and in both cases, UST representatives provided excellent communication and support resulting in the denial of both claims.  We do not employee a human resource staff member so UST’s customer support is crucial.  Also, UST allows us to accrue our payments over time resulting in an experience refund on three separate occasions in the past ten years." 

-Kathy List, CEO, Big Brothers, Big Sisters of GC

"Being part of UST has kept the claims process very easy for us since they manage it all.  We only fill out a questionnaire when someone makes a claim and they handle the rest.  The rate we pay has been very, very low as well, and we have gotten these refunds twice now that have helped us with funding needs since they are unrestricted dollars for us."

-Shari Patrick, CFO Santa Maria Community Services


This comprehensive survey is a bit more extensive than others as it provides regional data points -- very important and useful for benchmarking.

  1. It includes both compensation AND benefits.
  2. It has a comprehensive list of job descriptions (80+ of them) -- other surveys have general categories.
  3. It’s only $150 for Members of Leadership Council and Dean Dorton clients and $300 for all others. Other less comprehensive surveys are sold for much more. 

Here are a few points of interest:

  • Responding organizations cover a wide range of missions and services, from social service, health, arts & culture, community development, elder care, and more.
  • 68% of agencies participating in this survey had 50 employees or less
  • 75% of agencies are located in Hamilton County, 15% in Northern Kentucky, and 10% in other Ohio counties or Southeast Indiana counties
  • 43% of respondents have budgets under $1 million
