2021 Compensation & Benefits Planning

This spring, before Covid-19 hit, we launched our 2020 compensation & benefits survey, sponsored by VonLehman CPA & Advisory Firm, and administered by Employers Resource Association. The range and depth of data provided by the 140+ agency respondents is very valuable to the entire nonprofit sector. This survey includes local, comparative and up to date compensation, benefits and trends.

NEW for 2020 - we analyzed the data, segregating it by gender differences in executive pay, and compensation and benefits broken down by budget size. No matter the size of organization, this survey provides benchmarking data to include in your strategies and your budget planning for 2021.

Nonprofit Partnerships: Follow These 3 Tax Steps for Success 
Most people use the terminology “partnership” believing a partnership is when two or more organizations come together to pool their resources and collaborate to achieve a common purpose.  Unfortunately, from a legal and tax perspective, a “partnership” is a legal agreement between two or more organizations that involve a complex interaction of business law, tax law and intellectual property rules.

There are many positive outcomes for a nonprofit organization to form a partnership with another organization(s) such as:
  1. Increasing revenue
  2. Reducing costs
  3. Gaining efficiencies
  4. Taking on larger projects
  5. New and broader markets
  6. Gaining new advocates

Since inception, RBC has served more than 400 families. RBC is a United Way of Greater Cincinnati partner and focuses on the most at risks populations, minorities and those who fall 200% below poverty. Read More
