Poll Shows Signs of Optimism in Fundraising Salaries

The data comes from an informal poll on AFP's website. The Quick Poll conducted from January to February asked people if they think they will be paid less, more, or about the same in 2010. The poll had 854 responses.
The vast majority of respondents predict they will make the same amount of money or more this year (77 percent). Only 10 percent predicted that they will be paid less.
