Reality Check: Alaska profits from nonprofits

Printer-friendly version

For example, we all know oil and gas drives Alaska, but do you know what our second biggest economic driver is? Turns out it's Alaska's nonprofits.

That's according to a new study released by the Foraker Group, itself a ground-breaking nonprofit group formed to provide support and guidance to Alaska's nonprofit community.


According to the Foraker report, nonprofits provide more than 44,000 direct jobs, which in turn creates thousands more. If nonprofits were considered a single industry, they would be second only to the oil and gas Industry when it comes to economic impact.
