Charlotte Nonprofit Services Were In High Demand In Pandemic — Now Their Recovery Begins

Printer-friendly version

“Nonprofits that really have seen an increase in need, in many cases, not an increase in resources to provide assistance,” said David Heinen, vice president of public policy at the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits.

survey from the center found 40% of respondents had an increase in demand for services and 75% indicated a loss in revenue during the pandemic.

“The solutions that have been there for nonprofits are more kind of Band-Aids that were kind of one-time fixes rather than sustainable support,” Heinen said.

Heinen says in order for nonprofits to sustainably recover, they’ll need added financial support.

“There's absolutely an ongoing need,” he said. “And I think it's going to need to be met by a combination of another round of private support, but also governmental support.”

He means support such as more Paycheck Protection Program loans or directing funds from the American Rescue Plan to nonprofits.
