Pay by Experience Level for Senior Major Gifts Officer

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Senior Major Gifts Officers, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay.

People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $91K in this role. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $92K on average.
