The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has partnered with Association TRENDS to conduct a confidential compensation survey to report on trends within nonprofit agencies in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties and help nonprofits:
  • become more competitive in the marketplace; and
  • retain staff as well as the institutional knowledge of long-tenured staff
Why Participate?
  • Contribute to produce robust data results, benefiting both you and your staff.
  • Compare and benchmark staff salary levels to other nonprofits in our region.
  • Set fair and competitive compensation to help hire and maintain valuable staff members based on regional data.
There is no cost to participate or to receive the final report. The survey closes on September 16, 2022. The final report will be available in October 2022.
Dates subject to change.
Please contact the Knowledge and Equity team at with any questions you may have about this survey.
