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 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.
