2014 State of the Nonprofit Sector

The Nonprofit Finance Fund’s annual survey asks Nonprofits in the U.S. about their programs, financial health, and management strategies. The survey is designed to help Nonprofits, supporters, researchers, and others ask better questions, shape dialogue, and challenge their assumptions about what nonprofits need to continue their work building healthier communities.

Nonprofit Sectors Represented

  • Human Services
  • Arts, Culture, Humanities
  • Education
  • Community Development
  • Health
  • Mutual, Membership Benefit
  • Civil Rights, Social Action, Advocacy
  • Environment and Animals
  • Workforce Development
  • Foundation
  • House of Worship
  • International, Foreign Affairs

Over 5,000 respondents – representing a range of Nonprofit sectors from across the country – contributed to the study. We’ve prepared a slideshare with a snapshot of some of the most interesting data gathered from the full study, including information on the demand for programs and services, financial well-being and biggest challenges facing the Nonprofit sector.
