Thoughts on non-profit organization with no bonus but 6% match on 401k?

Is it 100% of the 6%? If so, I’d say that’s pretty good. Is the salary or other benefits good enough to make up for not getting a bonus?

like

I believe 100%, other benefits are pretty generic though. Now I wish I aimed for a higher salary

Personally, I value the 401K match higher than the bonus potential. I think this is especially true if you are relatively early on in your career and 30+ years away from retirement. The value of that 6% match is far greater than 6% of your salary because it has decades to compound. Plus, 401K limits don’t apply to the match, only your own personal contributions.
