Non Profits Orgs. & Compensation (Paid Board Members)
Since there has been some interesting discussions on non profit organizations I thought the topic of compensation, and any non profit that has board members that receive compensation- might be an additional topic to discuss. Personally, I'm not aware of many myself that do operate with board members receiving compensation. I will also add that my personal feelings are that I'm not entirely against it, provided that it's within reason (in the grand overall scope of the org) and based on performance (like any other 'job'- not sure it that'd be the correct way to put it). I don't believe I've ever read any list anywhere (as it pertains to horse rescue orgs) that details those that do receive compensation.
ETA: Information on determining whether any org. board member receives compensation can be found by doing a search of the org. on Guidestar (or similar site), pulling up the most recent 990 return.
Sidenote: My only experience in providing assistance to rescue orgs. are that none (no board members) receive compensation- but that's been my experience.
