If you did not work on a snow day, then you need not be paid for it absent to an employment contract/union agreement to the contrary. That is unless, the worker used PTO or a vacatiion day to cover their absence.

Yes, they are allowed to not pay you for snow days (assuming you did not work that day, that is). There is NO law requiring employers, whether non-profit or otherwise, to pay any employees, whether exempt or nonexempt, for any days those employees do not work (unless, of course, the employee used a vacation day in order to be paid).
