The Economic Impact of Florida Nonprofits by Florida Nonprofit Alliance

Publication date: 
08/2017

Nonprofits are more important than ever, not only through their various health, human service and educational services, but also in their significant contribution to the overall economy. While there is considerable focus on the public and private sectors of our economy, the nonprofit sector’s economic contributions draw little attention.

The Florida Nonprofit Alliance has commissioned a tailored report that provides an overview of Florida’s nonprofits and their positive economic impact on the state. This critical study provides the state’s elected officials, business community and its nonprofit sector with clear, concise and accurate information on the breadth and financial scope of the nonprofit sector, ultimately providing factual support for the investment in the services and resources nonprofits supply. 

Watch the recording below as Florida Nonprofit Alliance Executive Director Sabeen Perwaiz takes a deeper look at the report and how you can apply the findings to your work.
