In 2020, the Center for Nonprofit Advancement and consulting firm Brighter Strategies collaborated on a study to assess the impact of the convergence of Covid-19, incidents of racial injustice, and multiple environmental challenges on the nonprofit community at that time.The survey included 255 organizations representing a cross-section of our region’s nonprofit sector, and the research resulted in significant changes to government partnership priorities, targeted philanthropic investments, and the Center’s work. As we continue to address the impact of the pandemic and the shifts in our work, Brighter Strategies and the Center are embarking on a follow-up study. While we recognize that there are many interesting questions to explore, we decided to focus on those questions that would best help us all understand our area’s current and expected capacity-building and funding needs.
With this data, we can prepare to serve you better, and will also analyze the data to understand trends by specific industry or region (county, state, ward, etc.). We intend to share the results widely.We hope you or a leader at your nonprofit will give us a few minutes of your time to complete this survey, which should only take about 10 minutes to complete. We thank you in advance for your time in this important effort.
