Help CCP and Council on Foundations Gather Data on the Field

CCP is pleased to join ten regional associations of grantmakers from across the county to partner with the Council on Foundations on the 2018 Grantmaker Salary and Benefits (GSB) Survey.

Since 1980, the GSB Survey has provided the sector with the most comprehensive data on staff composition and compensation in the United States for grantmakers to use in planning budgets, benchmarking personnel policies and practices, determining salary levels for new and existing staff, and more.

We encourage all CCP members to participate in the 2018 GSB Survey - the greater the participation, the greater the insight.

Plus, participation gives you complimentary access to:

  • Mid-September 2018 release date. This is the earliest the full report has ever been released and it has been expedited in response to survey participant feedback.

  • Benchmark Central, the Council's online benchmarking tool which will allows you to create custom benchmarking reports. Access to a multi-module tutorial on how to maximize the platform will be announced in conjunction with the release of the report.
