Nonprofit Compensation Consultants

Our nonprofit compensation consultants have extensive experience creating competitive nonprofit compensation programs for major U.S. foundations and nonprofits. The Croner Company acquired Lasnik∞Broida Consultants, Inc. in 2016 to build on the strengths of the two nationally recognized boutique consulting
firms, blending Croner’s high-level, high-touch data analytics approach with Lasnik∞Broida’s annual survey of foundations and consulting services to foundations and nonprofits.

We publish the Croner Total Compensation Survey of Foundations, considered the gold standard benchmark resource for total compensation information and data in the foundation sector. The survey contains everything required to know how to be competitive in attracting, retaining, and motivating talent. Our nonprofit consulting utilizes the results of our annual survey to provide strong data analytics and pragmatic solutions to our clients.
