U.S. Nonprofit Sector Uneven in Impact and Recovery, Report Finds
While nonprofits have contributed significantly to the society and economy of the U.S. in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health of the sector is uneven in both impact and recovery, a new report from Independent Sector finds. Based on aggregated survey and research data from multiple sources in four categories — financial resources, human capital, governance and trust, and public policy and advocacy — the second edition of the Health of the U.S. Nonprofit Sector found that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic varied by subsector and organization size, with arts organizations and those that rely on fees for service hit especially hard. To view the report, go to independentsector.org/nonprofithealth.
