Setting Executive Compensation

Shane Hamilton will speak on this webinar, part of the five-part series "Nonprofit Governance & the Revised IRS Form 990."

The Form 990 asks about the nonprofit’s process for determining the compensation of senior management and what information was used to set the compensation. This webinar will discuss the IRS’s rules for how an organization should set executive compensation, including:

  • Determining the senior managers that are subject to the policy,
  • The persons the board should designate to set compensation,
  • The comparability data the organization should use to establish what level of compensation should be paid, and
  • The documentation and disclosure requirements for executive compensation.

It will also discuss how to determine your organization’s compensation philosophy and how to select the peer organizations used to determine comparability.
