BVWireIssue #59-5
August 29, 2007 has started posting a list of the highest paid nonprofit executives in each of the fifty states—one state per week—in order of their admission to the Union.  IRS Form 990, the annual data filed by most charitable organizations, furnishes the information, while databases ERI (Economic Research Institute) digitizes the compensation on smaller nonprofits and GuideStar for those with >$1million annual revenue.  “More a census than salary survey,” according to the site, the reports will eventually include compensation data from all U.S. charities except churches and those who don’t file a Form 990.  Currently in its 35th week, SalariesReview is now highlighting nonprofits in West Virginia.
