“The state of nonprofits right now is challenging, to say the least, and it doesn’t matter what sort of nonprofit it is. They are facing unprecedented obstacles right now,” said Rick Cohen, chief communications officer and COO for the National Council of Nonprofits.

Adding to concerns about decreasing donations, nonprofits run programs that receive funds from local, state or federal governments. In some cases, those payments that have not been received, Cohen said. While the PPP loans did help nonprofits that were eligible, more is needed.

“Without something more and quickly, we will see a lot more nonprofits that aren’t going to be able to help their community. There is only so far they can stretch, and they’ve passed that point. They are doing everything they can, but there are limits,” he said. “Some of the stories we have been hearing over the last few weeks are heartbreaking.”
