Not-For-Profit Executive Compensation

We advise governing boards and their compensation committees on many of the same issues that confront for-profit companies. With scrutiny of non-profit executive compensation intensifying, the duty to ensure that compensation programs are reasonable and defensible continues to be of great importance. Our services to not-for-profit boards and compensation committees include:

  • Compensation committee charter preparation and review

  • Executive compensation strategy, philosophy and guiding principles

  • Peer group development

  • Collection and analysis of competitive compensation data including peer group data

  • Processes to ensure "rebuttable presumption" of the reasonableness of compensation under Internal Revenue Code Section 4958

  • Base salary plan development and administration

  • Review of employee benefit levels and perquisites

  • Review of possible use of incentive compensation

  • Employment agreements

  • Severance policies

  • On-going advice and counsel
