Fact: Your job can be a wonderful place, but over 65% of Americans do not like their jobs. Even if you think you can just keep your head down and work hard to get promoted, only 33% of nonprofit executive level positions are filled from within. Even if you have passion for the mission, it’s not enough to keep you from getting the short end of the stick with your nonprofit salary.
It gets worse. You live on credit, because you can’t save on your tiny nonprofit salary. Your boss expects you to dress like you make $100,000 more than you actually do. You know that most nonprofit fundraisers will stay in a job from 12 to 18 months. Until they leave, voluntarily or otherwise. With at-will employment, if your boss asks you to work over the weekend,what are you going to say, No?
Your boss can fire you on a whim, without any reason at all. And even if it’s totally unfair, there’s nothing you can say, because you signed the at-will employment contract. So there goes your paycheck, your rent money and food money. There goes all those long hours, down the drain. You slaved away, made them hundreds of thousands or even millions, and now you’re out. There goes your career. Who wants to hire someone who has been fired? What can you do about this?

It’s hard out there. Many people just say “Stick with it! You’ll be rewarded!” But according to the Bridgespan Group, most nonprofit staff are NOT being groomed for leadership, and only 33% of the time do people from inside the nonprofit even attempt to fill senior leadership level positions. That means most of the time, you will have to make a leap to another nonprofit to move on up.
