  • Compensation data on 14 top leadership positions, including CEO, CFO, and more
  • An executive summary showing compensation trends and insights at a glance

While this report would likely provide insight to the human resource department and leadership of nonprofit organizations, Candid proposes that the use-cases of this report scope beyond only decision-makers within these organizations to consultants, grantmakers, and researchers.
