This sounds perfect for Deno Andrews.

Do I get a finder's fee?

Pretty crappy pay for a job requiring that much experience. I realize it's a non-profit but it's going to be hard to find someone with all they want for that kind of salary.

"Pretty crappy" is an understatement, considering the required experience and the fact that they will have to relocate to Denver.

Also, don't get too caught up in the fact that it is a "non-profit" organization. From my experience, I can tell you that "non-profit" does not mean that huge amounts of money and huge salaries are not involved. It is possible that big money is not involved, but don't assume that as a fact.

I would venture to guess that a lot of businesses in the pool industry are non-profit. Unfortunately, not intentionally.

The Crusade of Mercy is probably the most profitable non for profit business I can think of.

Well, there's non-profit and then there's non-profit. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The only true pool charitible organization that I know of where you can get a tax deduction for your donation is the Billiard Education Foundation. That organization offers academic scholarships to high school and college pool players. That's a 501 C-3 IRS designation.

The other sports organizations that are non-profit are 501 C-6's which include pro golf and tennis associations as well as the pool associations. Those are not tax-deductible to the contributors.

I'm sure the United Way is high on that list.

I did not find the salary to be surprising when I saw it. Not many organizations like this will have the capability to pay much more.

I do not think that 3 yrs experience and a bachelors degree are a whole lot to be asking for. There are a lot of professions that require more and pay equal or less. Social workers usually have masters degrees, and fall into this category with even more experience. I can think of a lot of professions withhigher degrees and equal or less pay. Besides, you are getting paid to live in Denver /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif and promote pool. The average american salary is certainly not over 60k.

I think the offer is very appropriate given the job description and requirements.

The Denver/Colorado part alone is worth at least $20K/year. Colorado is a nice place to live, especially if you like to do stuff other than playing pool. Some people, including myself, actually like doing stuff outside (e.g., hike, bike, ski, raft, fish, hunt, etc.) every once in a while.
