Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Virginia (BGCCVA) – Compensation Philosophy 


As Central Virginia’s leading provider of out-of-school youth development services, BGCCVA believes our employees are our most valuable resource. Building and supporting a diverse and inclusive team of talented, collaborative, and engaged people is critical to our success. BGCCVA’s compensation philosophy is based on four principles:

1. The five components of compensation include pay, benefits, work-life, performance and recognition, and professional development.

2. Pay and benefit levels are equitable, fair, and competitive relative to similar-sized local and regional nonprofits.

3. Targeted salary ranges, in general, are around the market median relative to BGCCVA’s defined market. Salaries may be adjusted based on market conditions, when necessary, to attract and retain the diversity of talent with the essential skills to fulfill BGCCVA’s mission.

4. Individual employee pay is based on compensable factors, such as performance, relevant experience, years in field of work, education/credentials (if required), tenure at organization, tenure in position, and level of job responsibility.

BGCCVA consistently evaluates salary ranges, which are based on benchmarked sourcing from local, regional, and national compensation reports. Salaries are enhanced by a highly competitive package for full-time employees that includes:

1. Benefits

○ Medical, dental, and vision benefits that are generously supplemented by the employer for the employee with options for flexible spending
○ 403b/401(k) plan with an employer match and professional financial advisory services
○ Company paid life insurance, AD&D, and long-term disability

2. Work-Life

○ Time off (PTO)
○ Paid parental leave
○ Flexibility within parameters of roles and responsibilities
○ Educational Assistance
○ Mental Health Options (full and part-time employees)

3. Performance and Recognition

○ Annual Employee Evaluation including differentiation of pay awards
○ Employee Recognition Program (full and part-time employees)

4. Professional Development

○ Employee-Driven Opportunities
○ Employer and Boys & Girls Clubs of America-Driven Opportunities

BGCCVA is committed to offering a compensation package that is developed both internally and with the periodic assistance of outside resources/consultants to ensure that programs are competitive, fair, equitable, and meet legal requirements.

BGCCVA’s compensation philosophy supports BGCCVA’s values and mission to “enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible members of the communities in which they live.”
