Small Business is our Business

The Ninth Annual Long Island Nonprofit Survey conducted earlier this year by Cerini & Associates reveals a very challenging environment for nonprofits.  Some of the key  findings include:

*5% are in the process of merging with another organization

*19% are considering a merger

*4%  are considering ceasing operations

*8% of nonprofits are eliminating some programs for 2013

*With contributions decreasing, nonprofits are  increasingly charging fees for services(32%)—-up from 11% a year earlier

*34%  reported a decrease in the number of  volunteers

The survey also covers nonprofit demographics, their use of social media , salaries,  and compliance information  with the New York’s Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act of 2010.

This survey can be found in the Business Reference collection in the library,
