Nonprofits Pay Women Execs Less

Not many women reach the top position in American nonprofit organizations, and those who do make less money than their male counterparts, a survey has found.

The median salary of all chief executive officers was $188,686 last year, according to a survey of 188 charitable organizations by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

But the women, who made up about 16 percent of the executives, earned only $163,100 compared with a median salary of $192,125 for men, the chronicle reported.

Overall, salaries rose 4.8 percent for the executives in organizations that also reported data last year.
