2023 Grantmaker Salary and Benefits Survey is now open!
The 2023 Grantmaker Salary and Benefits Survey is open to participants now through May. Since 1980, the annual Grantmaker Salary and Benefits (GSB) Survey has provided the philanthropic sector with the most comprehensive data on foundation staff and board compensation. Grantmakers rely on this annual report to inform budgeting, talent recruitment, retention strategies, and personnel policies and practices.
Your participation in the GSB survey is needed—the greater the participation, the greater the insights for the sector and for your fellow Philanthropy Southeast members. Through a partnership with the Council on Foundations (COF), Philanthropy Southeast provides custom salary tables for grantmakers from our region each fall (typically early October).
What are the benefits for participating organizations?
All survey participants (both COF members and non-members) will receive:
- Free access to the GSB Report
- Early access to the report’s data tables
- Access to create custom benchmark reports
Reports and data are expected to be released in fall 2023.
How can your foundation participate?
Visit the COF website to learn more and for detailed instructions on how to complete the survey.
