The Nonprofit Finance Fund, in collaboration with the National Council of Nonprofits, has released findings from its 2014 State of the Sector Survey. The fund concluded that "the economic recovery is leaving behind many nonprofits and communities in need," and found that:
- 80% of respondents reported an increase in demand for services, the 6th straight year of increased demand.
- 56% were unable to meet demand in 2013—the highest reported in the survey’s history.
- Only 11% expect 2014 to be easier than 2013 for the people they serve.
By the way, 93 Alaska organizations participated in the survey. Thanks to everyone who took time to contribute the Alaska perspective to this important piece of research.
