Job Outlook for Non-Profit Managers
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) lists Social and Community Service Managers among its fastest-growing job categories, forecasting 17% growth in demand between now and 2029. The BLS attributes this strong growth to an increasing need for services for the elderly, mental health services, and a trend that substitutes social and mental health treatment for incarceration. According to the BLS, Social and Community Service Managers earn $67,150 per year nationwide, on average. PayScale.com estimates that non-profit leaders earn $71,346 per year, on average. PayScale.com’s survey of 3,977 non-profit leaders discovered that 64% are female, with salaries ranging from $41-123,000 per year.
