NFF’s Survey is the largest national sampling of our sector, gathering and publishing crucial data about the health and challenges of US nonprofits.
It’s a powerful platform that raises the voices of nonprofits large and small, urban and rural, across sub-sectors and geographies. It’s a real-time evidence base widely used and cited by nonprofit leaders and boards, funders, advocates, policy advisors, media, researchers, and many others.
In 2015, we learned that, despite the US economic recovery, vulnerable communities were going without because nonprofits couldn’t meet increasing demand. Leaders reported persistent worries about succession planning, workforce retention, and financial sustainability. One said: “Our greatest challenge is the uncertainty and constancy of operating on such a knife edge.” For many today, that knife edge feels even thinner. Now more than ever, the country needs to know what’s at stake.
The Survey only takes about 25 minutes and you don’t have to do it all at once – just remember to finish the questions and hit “submit” before Feb. 21, so your voice is included! Your responses will remain anonymous unless you choose to identify yourself.
