 Economic Health and Impact of Nonprofits in CT (2010)

The Economic Health and Impact of Nonprofits in Connecticut (2010)

Nonprofits are needed now more than ever to assist struggling Connecticut individuals and families as the state continues its economic recovery. To do so, there must be an honest recognition that nonprofits are an engine of economic growth and provide for the stability of our population across our social and economic landscape. The state must work with us, not against us, to ensure our continued viability.

This report examines the impact of the current economy on nonprofits in Connecticut, including data from a January 2010 survey of CT Nonprofits’ membership. It also looks at the role of nonprofits in the state’s economic recovery efforts, as well as the partnership between nonprofits and state government, specifically in three main areas: (1) contracting, (2) accountability / reporting, and (3) funding
