Putting data in service of change. This is one of the ways Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) supports thousands of nonprofits each year. And we couldn’t do it without your participation. We hope nonprofits from around the country will share their story and take our Annual State of the Nonprofit Sector survey. The Survey is designed to capture nonprofits’ trends, challenges, and actions across a broad mix of programmatic, financial, and operational indicators.

Over the last 7 years, our reports have been cited in The New York Times, Huffington Post, and The Chronicle of Philanthropy. The survey data is truly open source, available and accessible to anyone interested in using it. It has helped drive and bolster the legislative and advocacy agendas of partner organizations. Grantmakers can use this dataset to remain responsive to the needs of nonprofits in real time and refine their philanthropic investment strategies. Nonprofit leaders like Cynda Mack, Vice President of the Metropolitan Development Corporation, have used the data to assess whether organizational leadership were on the same page about the strategic direction of the organization. And perhaps most importantly, the data has served as a national bellwether on the health and vitality of the sector. With the right data, we can ignite conversations to move the sector forward. The survey will close in mid-February so please add your voice to the national conversation!

Please help us spread the word about NFF's Annual Nonprofit Survey in your community. We have prepared an Outreach Kit with tools and resources that all our friends, supporters, and partners can use to easily share the survey link with their networks. Thank you for helping with this data-gathering effort!


Our 2014 NFF Survey Analyzer at survey.nff.org allows you to investigate questions that cut across sub-sectors, budget size, geography and other dimensions. We'll be creating an analyzer for the 2015 results once the survey is closed, so please stay tuned for more.
