We want to hear from youDo you remember the groundbreaking 2014 Causes Count: The Economic Power of California's Nonprofit Sector report? That study revealed a few surprising things including, for example, that nonprofits employ one in 15 California residents. Now CalNonprofits and The Nonprofit Institute at the University of San Diego are again collaborating to update the report and dive deeper into areas like government funding. And we need your help! 

If you are a senior leader at a California nonprofit please complete this 10-15 minute survey. Your responses will help inform policymakers, philanthropic leadership, and the public about what we do and why it’s important. Please share the survey link with other people – the more responses we get, the more useful the report will be for us all. 

 We will combine your responses with data from IRS Forms 990, government funding data, Department of Labor data, economic metrics, and a survey of California residents to tell the story of California’s nonprofit sector. Get started here. If you have to pause the survey midway, please keep it open on your browser because if you close it, your responses will not be saved.

If you have any questions about this survey or the study, please contact Dr. Mary Jo Schumann, Director of Research.
