from the Council on Foundations in partnership with the 
Forum of Regional Association of Grantmakers and the Foundation Center
COF Survey
This annual publication is one of the most important and effective tools produced for our field so we hope you will take the time to complete this (not super long) survey.

About the Survey
The “Grantmakers Salary and Benefits Survey” collects compensation data for positions at grantmaking entities-community, private (family and independent), and public foundations and corporate grantmakers. Survey participants are able to benchmark themselves against their peers, by grantmaker type, asset size, or state or region, or against a specific peer group of grantmakers they choose. Please note: answers to this survey will remain confidential, and results will be reported only in the aggregate.

Benefits for participating

  • Free access to the online benchmarking tool (only if you complete the survey online)

  • Corporate grantmakers survey– This version is for corporate foundations and corporate giving programs.
