ABSTRACT
The article reports on an analysis of the compensation of top-paid nonprofit executives in 2010 in Detroit, Michigan. The analysis found that the trend on the use of incentive pay as a component of compensation is returning to pre-recession levels among executives of grant-making foundations, human services, and arts and culture organizations. Furthermore, it also shows that incentive pay is not prevalent among foundation heads.
