Individual Compensation

(Executives, directors, top-paid staff & consultants)

December 2000

The Pay column below combines salaries, benefit plan contributions (if any), and expense accounts for the few individuals who are not required to itemize expenses. Individual independent contractors such as attorneys, accountants, and consultants are listed as well as directors and regular staff.

The IRS does not require disclosure of non-board compensation under $50,000. British charities must disclose the approximate amount of their highest salaries, but not who receives them.

Salary norms identified as SAWA come from the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators annual survey of Salary and Personnel Practices. Since SAWA does not see fit to share the findings, we are obliged to use leaked and therefore possibly incomplete data. Norms identified as C&L come from the Coopers & Lybrand publication Compensation in Not-for-Profit Organizations. Norms identified as CHRN come from surveys done by The Chronicle of Philanthropy. Norms identified as AVMA are from Veterinary Market Statistics, a publication of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Norms identified as NAVTA are from the North American Veterinary Technicians Association.

Volunteers are listed only if working in a senior leadership capacity full-time or nearly full-time.
