Dear XXX,

Please add your voice to those of thousands of other nonprofit leaders in the effort to provide a solid, evidence-based snapshot of our sector’s financial health.

The Nonprofit Finance Fund State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey is the biggest national sampling of our sector. In it, NFF asks nonprofits across the country about their health and challenges, compiling a crucial, data-based illustration of our collective ability to help the communities we all serve. The Survey is a powerful platform for nonprofits large and small, urban and rural, across sub-sectors and geographies, identifying and communicating our sector’s most critical needs. In a sector where data is sparse – and real-time data even rarer – its findings are widely used and cited by nonprofit leaders and boards, funders, advocates, policy advisors, media, researchers, and many others.

We at [organization] are proud to help NFF reach as many nonprofit leaders as possible and to help share the Survey’s findings as a resource for all.

Please take the Survey and raise your organization’s voice. 

NFF’s 2015 Survey found that, despite the US economic recovery, vulnerable communities were going without because nonprofits couldn’t meet increasing demand. Nonprofit leaders reported persistent worries about financial sustainability – fewer than half ended the previous year with a surplus; more than half said they had three months or less of cash-on-hand. In the words of one nonprofit leader: “Our greatest challenge is the uncertainty and constancy of operating on such a knife edge.”

How thin does that knife edge look to your organization amid today’s policy and funding uncertainties? How comfortable is your rainy-day fund? Does anything hinder your organization from doing all the good it sets out to do? What should the country know about what nonprofits need to do the work with which we are entrusted?

And please share this opportunity with as many other nonprofit leaders as you can. Every voice should be heard. Every one of us can use and learn from this data. We look forward to many energized discussions around the findings.

Sincerely,

XXXX
