NFF's 2022 National State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey is now live – take the survey today!

Participate in a unique opportunity to share the powerful collective voice of LA's nonprofits. The Committee for Greater LA, a cross-sectoral group of local Los Angeles leaders, is seeking data on local/regional nonprofit needs that will inform their strategy of support for the LA nonprofit sector for the next several years. Check here on January 26 for a link to the survey. 

Why add a LA component to the National Survey?

With generous support from Bank of America, NFF is reaching out to the Los Angeles community to get a deeper understanding of our work in this dynamic community– especially for BIPOC-led (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) and serving nonprofits. Our nonprofit sector truly stepped up during the COVID crisis, and as we hopefully edge toward recovery, we have to chart our future together.

As a complement to the National State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey, NFF is collaborating with the Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs at Cal State LA to run a tailored addition to the survey focused on the impact of COVID-19 on the Los Angeles nonprofit sector. The survey will have three goals:

  1. To have a deeper understanding of the current state of LA nonprofit financial health that will drive the systems change work of the Committee for Greater LA and other regional efforts
  2. To capture and share data on LA nonprofits around racial equity in nonprofit finance, including any funding disparities, by gathering data from organizations led by people of color, as well as ensuring we have an appropriate comparison group of white-led organizations 
  3. To capture a genuine “before and after COVID” look at the experience and situation of nonprofits in Los Angeles, focusing on getting “after” responses from as many as possible of the 2018 LA survey respondents who gave us permission to contact them 

LA respondents will receive additional questions within the National Survey, based on providing LA- specific zip codes.
