Too perky? Boston Globe reporters examine perks that accrue to many of the CEOs who run nonprofit arts and cultural institutions in their city.

"They are not only well-paid, but many receive an array of generous perks — housing allowances, home loans, club dues, and free travel for spouses. One was awarded a quarter-million dollars in retention bonuses. Another is reimbursed for his children’s college tuition. The executives on the receiving end of these benefits are not corporate chieftains. Instead, they run some of the Boston area’s most prominent nonprofit arts and cultural institutions. The organizations, though, say the perks are appropriate, and often key to attracting and keeping top talent." -- Beth Healy and Sacha Pfeiffer, the Boston Globe
