Nonprofits Pay Women Execs Less

MONDAY, SEPT. 16, 1996

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.
