Benchmarking Data Report FY2019 Includes New Sections on Racial Equity, Creative Aging, and More

The latest edition of the National Guild Benchmarking Data Report contains a wealth of data—on staff and faculty compensation, instructional fees, income and expense ratios, and more—that can inform your planning and budgeting and help funders and policy makers better understand the needs and impact of our field. The data, gathered from 179 Guild member organizations, is presented in easy to read charts and tables.

For the first time, the report also includes sections on racial equity, creative aging, and analysis of salary information by organization type, type of community served, and organizational budget size. Our Development Manager, Kate Riley, wrote a blog post about how the decision to include questions about creative aging in the survey was part of our effort to confront ageism and promote inclusion for community arts education students of all ages, and what the resulting data tells us. Read the blog post on the Aroha Philanthropies website.

Access to the Benchmarking Data Report is $50 for members; $100 for non-members. Membership is currently pay-what-you can
