2013 Grantmakers Salary and Benefits Survey

July 2013

By Adam Donaldson, Member Services Director

The Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers is pleased to partner with the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers on the 2013 Grantmakers Salary and Benefits Survey, which collects data on compensation, staff demographics, and benefits costs across a wide range of positions and grantmaking entities, including organizations, federations, and community, private, and public foundations. Thank you for your organization’s past participation.

The Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers is once again using the Council’s online benchmarking tool to generate customized reports for our members once the data is available later this summer. All online survey respondents will receive:

  • Early access to a compensation summary for their foundation type with data on 34 positions
  • Access to online benchmarking, including customized reports on a choice of peer groups
  • A PDF copy of the full 2013 report

It is in our mutual best interests to gather as much data as possible so this survey is useful and reflective of the field. With your help, the 2013 Grantmakers Salary and Benefits Report will provide critical information needed to determine fair compensation across multiple organizational levels.

Because the survey is conducted at an organizational level, you will need to designate an appropriate staff person as the survey contact. To request a user account, the survey contact should e-mail the Council’s Research Department ( This email should include the contact’s name, title, and phone number with your organization’s name, type, and address. Once an account has been established, the survey contact will receive his or her personal log-in information and a link to the survey.

The Council continues to conduct this survey in partnership with the Foundation Center and your primary contact will be a Foundation Center staff person who will answer questions about the survey and user accounts.

TheGrantmakers Salary and Benefits Surveyremains aninitiative of the Council,and the data confidentiality and usage policies are unchanged.

The deadline for the survey is July 31, 2013. For more information, including a copy of the survey instrument, visit

This annual survey is one of the most important and effective tools produced for our field and we encourage you to participate. Many ABAG members request this data annually.

Thank you!
