Compensation Foundation is an online survey and database collecting, sharing, and analyzing information about how cultural producers are compensated.
As a website, it will function primarily as an interactive survey. After survey participation, users will be directed to the organization website which will display data highlights and have information about the organization. Data will be displayed in a number of ways, have a peer verification system, and cultural organizations will also be able to enter how they compensate the artists they work with.
Compensation Foundation is a non-profit structure that will rely on donations from individuals and foundations.
There are no direct competitors for this type of site, so the three examples are examples of
1. Cultural Data Project: a cultural organization dealing with data
2. Glass Door: a salary aggregator that depends on user input
3. My Slavery Footprint: a survey website that mimics the structure of survey-before-organization website structure that is being imagined.
