In many of the talks I give, I start with charts and graphs that give an overview of the nonprofit sector.
I want to thank Ben Klaskey of Philanthropy Reports for putting it all together in such an engaging way. Thank you Ben, for letting me share “Know Your Sector” with our readers.
I’d like to give a shout out to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, a project of the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy, at the Urban Institute. I find that I probably visit the NCCS free Table Wizard at least once a month. (Of course, I’m always scrounging for data).
Maybe it’s just me, but I often overhear conversations among nonprofit executives, service providers, or board members who make statements like “I wish we knew how many nonprofits there were in our state” or “how does our organization measure up to the larger nonprofit landscape in terms of revenues.” I suggest that they check out NCCS.
