I'm currently interviewing for a position in a non-profit organization. The topics of compensation and bebefits have not come up yet,but I would like to be a bit more prepared when they do. My question is: do non-profit organizations usually offer the same type of benefits as for-profit organizations, i.e. health insurance, vacations, sick-time, 401K, etc.?

I don't know what might be typical with regard to your potential employer, or what might be typical across all non-profits, but, yes, non-profit organizations do ofter at least some benefits like vacations, health insurance, etc. that are at least comparable with for-profit companies. (There may be some cases where a non-profit's benefits package might be superior to a comparable for-profit company, in recognition that the compensation itself may not be comparable.) As for retirement, please note that many non-profits' retirement plans are technically called 403(b) plans rather than 401(k)s, but function in largely the same manner... Good luck with your negotiations!
