COMPENSATION SURVEY

 
 

Data shows that two-thirds of nonprofit organizations expect to add employees to their staff this year and this will and has resulted in the growing competition. In response to this, local facts on salary and benefits will be crucial. The local data provided by the NPW survey and resulting report will meet a very specific need for Westchester’s nonprofit organizations.

Charting an Anti-Racist Path Forward

NPW is committed to providing the resources for our members and all nonprofits to build anti-racist systems, support people of color to lead, and fortify BIPOC led organizations.

Last year, the U.S. Department of Education announced a temporary period during which borrowers may receive credit for payments that previously did not qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) or Temporary Expanded PSLF (TEPSLF). This waiver makes it easier for public service employees to receive credit for more payments. However, this waiver currently expires on October 31, 2022.
