Cascade Employers Association is pleased to present key findings from the 2019 Nonprofit Pay and Benefits Survey report. Cascade’s Nonprofit Pay and Benefits survey is comprised of over 250 job descriptions and 100 benefit-related questions. This survey provides in-depth market pay and benefit data stemming from nonprofit organizations throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Data for this survey was collected between March and May of 2019, with 171 nonprofit organizations participating. Key findings include:

1. Participation Remaining Steady

From 2018 to 2019, participation counts have remained steady, with only a 5 +/- difference in number of organizations participating and number of reportable jobs. This result should make data from 2018 and 2019 more comparable, allowing for a better analysis of trends and patterns.

2. Geographic Location and Total Employment Count Shift Participant Distribution

The number of participating organizations from the Mid-Willamette area has remained steady at 47% in 2019; however, we see a shift away from Portland Metro to the Surrounding Area. Portland Metro’s participation rate has dropped in 2019 from 41% to 35%, while the Surrounding Area rose from 12% to 18%.

This shows a greater participation rate from Southern and Eastern Oregon, which begins to even out the geographic cuts from the overwhelming domination of the Portland Metro and Mid-Willamette in the 2017 report.

4. Decline in Group Health Insurance?

In 2017, 92% of employers offered group health insurance. However, that percentage has dropped to 88% now in 2019. While a large majority still provide group health insurance, it is interesting to see this trending downwards, and makes it a benefit to watch in the coming years.

5. Health Insurance Offerings to Domestic Partners Rising

Health insurance offerings to domestic partners has been on the rise. In 2017, 69% of companies offered health insurance to same sex domestic partners, and 62% offered health insurance to opposite sex domestic partners. These percentages have been on a rise since, and in 2019 are at 79% and 73% respectively.

6. Changes in Employer Contribution to Health Insurance Options

2019 has seen Employer Contribution to Traditional/Indemnity/Fee for Service Plans rise to 99%, up from 93% in 2018. We have also seen a rise in the number of organizations that offer Health Maintenance (HMO) insurance options from 24% in 2017 to 31% in 2019. However, the Employer Contribution to HMO plans has decreased through the years, from 93% in 2017, 88% in 2018, to 83% in 2019.
