Above goal newsletter week of august-6-2018

Percentage-based compensation, let’s talk about it.

  • The Above Goal Podcast with Ken Jones is published every week on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher.

    On Episode 4 of the Above Goal Podcast, Ken and his friend hash out the legal and societal issues with offering incentives to fundraising employees in the nonprofit sector. They discuss recruiting - and keeping - talent, and how to value the best employees in a world where being motivated by personal financial gain is frowned upon. There’s also a series of rapid-fire questions for Ken on everything from what to expect from a newly hired major gifts officer, to whether nonprofits should stop throwing large annual events.

    Your homework, their references:


When we start talking about how talent fuels our causes, instead of lumping [compensation for talented top employees] into a “general operating bucket” or having a “90% goes to programs” number, our organizations will be much better.
