According to The Chronicle of Philanthropy, more than two dozen fundraisers at U.S. nonprofits earn more than $500,000, and at least two make $1-million or more. YU’s Daniel Forman, Vice President Development, was the third highest paid on the list at just under the million dollar mark.
The Chronicle reviewed pay at 280 nonprofits that raise at least $35-million from private sources.
Echoing a similar sentiment to those recently expressed by Peter Wilner, retiring national executive director of the American Friends of The Hebrew University, who lamented about the “dearth of high-quality professional fundraisers” in the Jewish community today, The Chronicle reports that an “arms race” has broken out among nonprofits to lure talented fundraisers with hefty salaries.
