With greater need and fewer dollars, NH nonprofits compete for funds

Michael Ostrowski, the interim executive director at the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits, said even public entities like schools now need to raise private dollars for their projects and extracurricular activities. And, he said, New Hampshire also has a reputation of being one of the stingier states.

“That has increased the competition level for some of the more traditional nonprofits, like the Girl Scouts and the Red Cross,” he said.

That shift is happening at a time when the demand on nonprofits is also growing.

“With the devolution of state responsibility, with the state doing less and less, the reliance on nonprofits has become greater and greater,” Ostrowski said. “Dealing with the homeless, for example, or providing supportive services for the mentally ill or people with other disabilities.”
