W.A.G.E. Certification's fee calculator is a 3-tiered system that determines fair compensation using two mechanisms: it establishes an industry-wide minimum or FLOOR W.A.G.E. for fees in 14 fee categories, and it scales these fees up from the floor using a fixed percentage of an organization's total annual operating expenses (TAOE). Use the slider to scale up or down—from the smallest organization at the far left to the largest institution on the far right.
