2013 Report

2013 Nonprofit Report: Is our sector stable or stagnant?

For the past three years, Idealist has surveyed the organizations in our network to ask about their financial situations, compensation practices, and hiring plans. And each year, we've culled the responses in a state-of-the-sector report to share with our community. This year, we're also including one-page data sheets that provide detailed information on specific cities and areas of focus.

The big takeaway from our 2013 report was the question: Is the nonprofit sector stable or stagnant? Responses indicated that while we have seen growth in the past three years, we may not have fully recovered from the recession yet.

We hope you'll enjoy the report and share it with your networks.
