In less than one month, new rules go into effect that benefit nonprofits in their relationships with local, state and federal governments.
The Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Guidance, published at the end of last year, mandates that governments at all levels must reimburse nonprofits for some or all of their indirect costs (sometimes called administrative or overhead costs) for work performed under a wide variety of contracts and grants when federal grant money is involved.
For the past year, federal agencies have been revising their regulations in order to ensure consistency with the new federal reforms. OMB is expected to release Interim Final regulations from most federal agencies that will take effect by Friday, Dec. 26, and all governments at all levels will be obligated to follow the new rules.
Leading up to the formal implementation date of Dec. 26, federal officials are continuing to make technical corrections and provide clarification for remaining questions. Last month, OMB released an updated version of Frequently Asked Questions published in late August clarifying some effective dates. Also, the National Science Foundation has already published its proposed revised policies, complete with a helpful guide identifying what is new because of the Uniform Guidance and other important changes.
Columbia Books and the Hawaii Alliance of Nonprofit Organizations have joined together to produce the 2014 Hawaii Nonprofit Compensation Report. Thanks to Hawaii nonprofits that participated, both members and nonmembers, the state salary survey conducted in the Spring of 2014 is a collection of invaluable data on nonprofit compensation specifically in Hawaii.
Highlights for this year include new senior job titles, including C-Suite positions, and a new question related to board member compensation.
What does the full report include?
- Hawaii-market-specific salary information for more than 100 positions, including median salaries, average salaries and more
- Compensation analysis by title, nonprofit type, budget and staff size
- Easy-to-use charts and graphs
The report will help you to:
- Determine the most competitive salary level for each position to support recruitment and retention
- Understand how your organization’s pay levels compare with others in your state
- Track changes in nonprofit pay levels and trends from one year to the next
- Provide hard data to support your salary structure recommendations
The report has been prepared by experts with more than 30 years of experience conducting regional nonprofit compensation studies. Its 117 job titles and detailed job descriptions will enable you to match job titles and actual job descriptions.

A program enabling federal employees in Hawaii to contribute to local nonprofits through payroll checkoffs has been extended to Dec. 15. Originally scheduled to close at the end of October, the Combined Federal Campaign lets federal workers contribute to the charity of their choice by simply donating a portion of their paycheck.
A little goes a long way, Kauai United Way Executive Director Scott Giarman told PBN. "Two-thirds of the money we raise in our annual campaign comes from regular people who contribute a few dollars per paycheck," Giarman said. "The opportunity to donate is [equal]. Even a Navy seaman in the Persian Gulf has the same opportunity to donate. It's one solicitation."
Federal employees have a choice of qualified charities that were accepted through application process.
Last year's campaign struggled to raise funds during sequestration and the government shutdown and was extended to January 2014, PBN reported. The 2013 national campaign ultimately raised over $5 million for international, national and 191 locally based charities, and the 24,465 donors made an average gift of $207, according to the Hawaii-Pacific Area Combined Federal Campaign.
The Hawaii-Pacific CFC has consistently been among the top-10-performing campaigns nationally. Click HERE for a full list of charities on this year's Combined Federal Campaign.
