Last year, the Nonprofit Finance Fund released a survey of the financial state of America’s nonprofits. Among other things, the survey focused on nonprofit finance, what organizations expected in 2010 in terms of funding and demand for services, and what steps they were taking to weather challenging economic conditions. The survey received a staggering amount of media and sector attention (relative to most surveys). Stephanie Strom did a piece in the New York Times and the data was cited throughout 2009 – recently in the Washington Post and the Boston Globe.
This year, NFF will conduct a similar survey. In the interest of providing the most valuable information possible to the sector, NFF wants to ask people what information would be useful to them and has selected the Tactical Philanthropy Community as the venue through which they’d like to gather input.
You can find information about last year’s survey here, summary results here and the full survey here. NFF would like the Tactical Philanthropy Community to make suggestions as to what additional questions should be asked in this year’s survey and plans to add a couple of questions based on this input.
To add your thoughts on what you’d like them to ask, leave a comment on this post.
