We want to hear from you! What are the greatest barriers you face in your ability to meet your mission? What would strengthen your capacity? We’re conducting research with four other states – Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Idaho – to gain a comprehensive look at the sector across the Northwest. Foraker will share the survey trends with funders and use the redults to reflect on our strategies to better meet your needs here in Alaska.

Your organization’s participation will allow us to provide you with an analysis of how your nonprofit compares to others in the region in these categories:

  • Mission – direction and priorities
  • Human – leadership, staff, volunteers
  • Governance – board and oversight
  • Culture – team and well-being
  • Strategy – programs, services, and innovation
  • Resources – fund development
  • Evaluation – data and impact
  • Operations – systems and structure
  • Engagement – advocacy, equity, and inclusion
  • Partnership – collaboration and collective impact

To receive the analysis after the survey closes, please provide your email at the end of the survey (optional).

Your contact information and answers will remain confidential – only the trends that emerge will be reported. The survey will take less than 30 minutes to complete.  We’re requesting that the survey be completed by the executive director (or their designee) or in the case of an all-volunteer organization, by the board chair.

Take the survey here. The deadline to participate is May 17.
