Management Contract Comparable's for Executive Compensation of a Non Profit in Portland Oregon Area

As I work to perform the comparable on this page as is the required and neglected work of every board that has every sat in NAPPS I will post interesting comparable. The Jewish Federation of Portland Oregon has over 3 million annual revenue and it administration costs is $267,077.00 a year. NAPPS has an annual revenue of 750K and an annual administration costs of over 240K a year. Or 25% of revenue and near 100% of administration costs. If this non profit organization was used as a comparable NAPPS should pay 75K a year for administration costs. 2012 Annual Report

This data is the requirement for executive compensation by the IRS. NAPPS board is a high outlayer way above comparable's in its payment to the boards administrator as compared to non profit of equal revenue, geographic location, etc. In the coming weeks I will prepare what the NAPPS contract should be based on specific comparable's. Preliminarily the contract should not be more than 175k a year. It is over 250K a year approved on 11/2012 for five years by Glenn, Randall, Musser, Ezell, Yellon, Kwiatkowski, Reynolds, Vennes, and Crowe. The job of comparing pay is what is required by the IRS for an independent board of directors in the performance of their fiduciary duties! This board and others before it have purposely failed to grasp this task! They have abrogated their duties of this task to the administrator and the benefactor of the contract.

If you would like to speed up this comparability project you may visit the Foundation Center or GuideStar enter the non profit name and view the most recent 990 and report to me what the executive director earned. For instance the Oregon Rehabilitation Association executive director Tim Kral makes $129,492.00 a year for annual revenue of $1,517,330.00. As compared to NAPPS Gary Crowe contract is approximately $250,000.00 annually for annual revenue of approximately $700,000.00. This is 200% pay for 50% of the revenue as it compares to the regional non profit peers. This one comparable would indicate excess compensation issued by the NAPPS board and I believe the rest of the comparables will fall the same way..
