Please complete only one survey per organization
Deadline: July 22
Dear Catholic Fundraising Colleagues:
Part of the purpose of the National Catholic Development Conference is to promote the highest standards of ethical fundraising practices in the religious fundraising community. These standards not only apply to how we perform the development function, but how we compensate our employees as well.
As religious non-profit organizations and institutions, we are challenged to compete with the for-profit world in finding competent, experienced and qualified staff to fill the positions in our development offices. While we may not always be able to offer our employees the same salaries, we must strive to offer them fair and just compensation and a real sense of pride in being part of that mission.
Surveys are one way to help us as an association and you as an organization to benchmark appropriate compensation. The survey, prepared by Trinity Executive Partnership, addresses compensation for positions and responsibilities specific to the development office in religious organizations.
On behalf of NCDC, I ask you to please take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete the survey. The more responses we receive, the better the survey results will be, which will give you the most appropriate information for your own planning.
A final report of the survey will be mailed to you free of charge if you provide your email address after you complete the survey. NCDC will not see your survey responses. We will only receive a list of the emails of those who are to receive the free report. Non-participants will be charged $75 to purchase the results.
Compensation continues to be a critical issue for Catholic organizations and those who lead our development efforts. Please take the time TODAY to complete the survey. All responses will be processed confidentially and then destroyed. Only summary results will be published.
Sr. Georgette Lehmuth, OSF
