What: Learn about nonprofits' health and concerns in these volatile times. This webinar will share the recently released results of Nonprofit Finance Fund's 2018 State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey. NFF's Survey raises the collective voice of thousands of nonprofit leaders in a sector where data remains dangerously scarce.
Survey findings are widely used and cited by leaders and funders in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors, including advocates, policy advisors, journalists, and researchers.
NFF began taking the pulse of nonprofits in 2009, when the Great Recession threatened the viability of organizations of all sizes and sectors, and has continued with generous support from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation since 2010.
The 2018 Survey results will show how nonprofits are addressing everything from racial inequity to access to capital to measuring their impact. Kerry Sullivan, President of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, and NFF's CEO, Antony Bugg-Levine, and Managing Director of Knowledge and Impact, Jennifer Talansky, will discuss the 2018 Survey findings.
Key themes to be explored will include:
- the top challenges facing nonprofits and the communities they serve
- how nonprofits are managing in the current funding and policy environments
- nonprofits' financial and operational health
