What's new in Causes Count - New Findings?

New research for this report includes a deep-dive into the relationship between government and nonprofits — the first time an analysis like this has ever been done in California. We also used the baseline data from the first-ever economic impact report, called Causes Count, released in 2014 to find new insights into California's nonprofit sector, including:

  • disparities within our sector are growing
  • California is now a net-exporter of foundation dollars
  • nonprofit sector's annual revenue grew faster than did California's GDP as a whole

Join us on January 14th to learn more! Hard copies of the report are available for purchase here or you can download the report as a PDF here.

We are proud to have partnered with The Nonprofit Institute at the University of San Diego on this research, and we are grateful to the many advisors and our funders and members who made this report possible.
