Charity Navigator provides high-quality information about charities in order "to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace." One of the more recently published studies is the 2007 CEO Compensation Study. Visitors can read this annotated report here in its entirety, and it contains a wealth of information about the subject. In the year 2007, their research shows that the top leaders of the 5242 largest charities in America earn an average salary of $145,270. While this amount may strike some as rather large, the report also notes that CEO compensation accounts for just 3.37% of the average organization's spending. The report contains a number of helpful charts, such as those that list average CEO salary by geographic region and by size of charity.
