Nonprofit organizations in North Carolina have never been more influential. They have also rarely been under greater stress.

Two important new surveys – one from the N.C. Center for Nonprofits and the other from the national Nonprofit Finance Fund – frame the situation in hard data. Together, they show both the tremendous promise and the spreading fault lines within our state’s nonprofit sector, which plays a crucial role in advancing education, health care, arts and an array of social services.

Their assistance provides a crucial social safety net for residents whose lives continue to be upended by the decline of the state’s manufacturing base and shrinking access to government services. Increasingly, though, nonprofits are grappling with their own problems.
