STATE OF THE NONPROFIT SECTOR SURVEY FINDINGS
To better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on nonprofit organizations, Orr Group conducted a survey to assess the current state of the nonprofit sector. With over 100 nonprofit organizations responding, some of our most notable findings include:
- The majority of respondents have adjusted their programming and the case they make to donors to reflect the changed environment.
- Organizations are continuing to rely on philanthropy with most organizations stating that as a percent of total income, they expect philanthropy to remain constant or grow.
- An overwhelming number of responding organizations expect to increase their reliance on individual philanthropists making gifts of all sizes to support their mission.
- Those organizations currently in or planning campaigns have all adjusted their case and/or timing, but most recognize the need for substantive fundraising to continue and are moving forward in some way.
We hope that the findings of this survey will help us and our nonprofit partners to better serve the community while contributing to the body of knowledge in the field.
