Funder Support During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic and related economic crisis, many nonprofits in communities around the country are in crisis, facing simultaneous increases in demand and decreases in revenue.

Based on a nationally representative survey of nonprofit leaders in May 2020, this study sheds light on which organizations face the toughest challenges, what is most needed from funders, and what differences in experience are emerging based on characteristics such as organization type and gender of organization leaders. The data in this report also reveals what nonprofits have found to be most helpful from institutional foundations and individual donors, respectively, as well as what they need most from both groups in the current moment.
