IRS Form 990 requires organizations to report the salaries of several groups of people, including their board of directors. On Part VII of GiveMN's Form 990, you will see our board of directors and executive director listed.
Our board of directors serve as volunteers and are not compensated. However, because GiveMN was an affiliate of The Saint Paul Foundation through 2017, the IRS requires us to include salaries of any of our board members who also served as staff members for The Saint Paul Foundation through 2017. These board members are not GiveMN employees and their salaries are not paid by GiveMN. But because they served on our board and are part of our affiliate organization, their salaries, which are paid by The Saint Paul Foundation for their work on behalf of the Foundation, must be reported on the GiveMN Form 990 through 2017.
The other person listed in Part VII of GiveMN's Form 990 is our executive director. The executive director's salary is set by our board using local industry-standard practices and national community foundation data, and is reviewed every two years.
