Coronavirus pandemic plunges Tucson nonprofits into fiscal quagmire

Printer-friendly version

According to a June 11 survey of 488 respondents from the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, fundraising and program cancellations due to COVID-19 have cost Arizona nonprofits nearly $53 million in lost revenue. A $25.3 million loss of revenue was reported by 128 Pima County respondents.


Simultaneously, stressful financial times and job losses have increased the demand for services from nonprofits, says Kristen Merrifield, CEO of the statewide Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits.

Added to the expenses side of the ledger: unexpected needs like hardware and software to provide services online and purchases such as personal protective equipment, better known as “PPE,” which is necessary to keep clients, volunteers and staff members safe, and to avoid contaminating products, like diapers, that the nonprofit may be providing.
