The Center for Non-Profits reports these organizations employ about 314,000 people, almost 10 percent of New Jersey's private-sector workforce, and more industries including construction, utilities, transportation, finance, and insurance. At the same time, the center says more than 1.6 million people volunteer at New Jersey nonprofits every year, contributing some 225 million hours of service with a value that tops $5.3 billion.

Still, many of these New Jersey organizations carrying out vital missions are facing serious financial struggles.  In its annual report, the Center for Non-Profits found while 75 percent of the state's charities are seeing a rise in demand for their services, most say financial uncertainty is the greatest challenge to the survival of their organization.
