A 2021 survey of the charitable nonprofit sector documented a severe workforce shortage crisis leading to unfilled vacancies, long waiting lists of people seeking services from understaffed nonprofits, chronic burnout, and other struggles to meet needs in local communities. The survey results led to action to implement solutions at the community, state, and federal levels. 

Now, 18 months later, the state of nonprofit employment is unclear. One view is that the nonprofit workforce has fully recovered to pre-pandemic levels. Other reports – from all over the country – suggest problems persist as charitable organizations compete for employees with governments and for-profit entities while trying to cope with increased demands for services, natural disasters, inflation, declining revenues, and more. The lack of accurate data makes it hard to manage the situation, much less overcome the growing challenges.

Help tell the charitable nonprofit story today. The results of the survey will drive solutions for this year and beyond.
