July 20, 2021: Persevering through Crisis: The State of Nonprofits

July 20, 2021,2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Join us for an interactive discussion of findings from a new resource from CEP on the state of nonprofits.

About this event

Over the past 15 months, many nonprofit organizations grappled with the devastating impacts of multiple compounding crises and the pandemic’s disruption to their work within their communities. As the sense of crisis wanes in the U.S., where do nonprofits stand today?

Findings from a new survey conducted by the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) show that U.S. nonprofits fared better than expected in 2020, thanks to increased giving from individual and foundation donors as well as federal funding. However, the data reveal concerning disparities in the experiences of women leading nonprofits and of nonprofits serving certain communities of color.

Based on a nationally representative survey of nonprofit leaders conducted in February, Persevering through Crisis: The State of Nonprofits sheds light on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nonprofits, how funders have stepped up, and how foundations have been more flexible, responsive, and communicative with grantees.

Join us for an interactive discussion of the report findings and hear from community-based nonprofit leaders and a foundation CEO on their experiences of the past year and their advice for funders going forward.

Speakers to be announced.
