The answer to that question depends on certain variables, including the expected duties and operations of the receptionist, the salary that the non-for-profit school is willing to pay, and the experience/skill of the receptionist. All receptionists are not created equal regardless, so a low-level receptionist with light data entry could make approximately $20,000 a year (around $10/hour) and a executive-level receptionist that arranges business trips and meetings, creates business letters and memos and performs A/P and A/R could make over $150,000 a year. To answer your question more concretely, it doesn't matter whether it's a non-for-profit or not---the real importance is the duties of the receptionist, the competition in your city-state (both the people clamoring for that one position, AND the other positions clamoring for people...supply and demand are huge players in recruitment), and the skill and experience of the receptionist. A median rate for a typical receptionist in most states is approximately $28,000-$33,000 a year.
