October 7, 2010; Source: Crain’s New York | Women running nonprofits in New York are still paid less than their male counterparts, according to GuideStar, which says that the gap exists not only in very large but relatively small nonprofits. For organizations with budgets of more than $5 million, men got paid an average of $621,000 compared to the $401,000 paid to women. In smaller organizations with budgets of less than $500,000 men earned $100,000 compared to the ladies who earned only $84,000. Apparently there is some awareness of the problem since women are getting bigger raises. In the organizations with budgets under $500,000 in 2008 women received an average of 3.7 percent pay raises against the 1.9 percent received by men.—Ruth McCambridge
