2012 State of the Sector Survey

NOTE: The 2012 Survey has closed.  Thank you for participating, and stay tuned for results!  Click here to see data from prior years.  


For more than 30 years, Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) has advocated for financially healthy and successful nonprofits that help to make the world a better place. That important work is bolstered by information we gather that lets us know what issues nonprofit organizations are confronting and where help is needed.  Here's where our Annual State of the Sector Survey comes in. 

This anonymous survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete and asks about your organization's financial and management challenges in 2011 and 2012.  With the help of generous support from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, we share the results widely with foundations, government entities, media, associations, advocacy organizations and nonprofits themselves.  (You can elect to have the results sent to you at the end of the survey.)  

We're proud of NFF's legacy in the nonprofit sector and how widely our survey-findings have circulated in previous years. We hope you'll volunteer just these few minutes to help us continue our work on behalf of your organization and your peers across the country.

Thank you!
