A growing number of Sacramento nonprofit leaders are drawing big salaries.
About 50 Sacramento-area CEOs earn more than $300,000 annually in total compensation, according to a Sacramento Bee review of the latest tax filings.
The list of well-compensated nonprofit executives is dominated by those in the health care industry, credit union leaders and those working for large professional associations. There are also a few CEOs at organizations focused on education and poverty relief that make that much.
Each year, the list gets bigger. Twenty of the 50 top-paying local nonprofits paid their CEOs at least 50 percent more in 2015 than during 2010. All but eight of the 50 top-paying nonprofits increased CEO pay faster than the rate of inflation between 2010 and 2015.
