Indiana Government Officials and Trust in Nonprofits

March 1, 2016

This briefing analyzes the extent to which local government officials (LGOs) -- individuals in strategic positions to assess the contribu-tions of Indiana nonprofits -- say they trust local charities and other nonprofits to do the "right thing" and what may explain such trust. It is the fourth in a series of briefings focusing on non-profit-government relations in Indiana from the Indiana Nonprofits: Scope and Community Di-mensions project. The first three briefings ex-plored LGOs' attitudes toward 2-1-1 services, payments in lieu of [property] taxes or PILOTs, and collaboration between local government and nonprofits. Subsequent briefings will up-date our analysis of attitudes towards PILOTs and other topics. All briefings are available at the project website: www.indiana.edu/~non-prof

Indiana Nonprofits: Scope and Community Dimensions

February 27, 2015

This report presents new data on the size, composition, and distribution of paid employment over the 1995-2011 time period in Indiana's private nonprofit organizations in a broad range of industries traditionally dominated by for-profit industries. Nonprofit organizations make significant contributions to the quality of life for the residents of Indiana and are a major force in the state's economy. This is particularly the case for the industries where nonprofits play a major role, such as health care, social assistance, education, arts, culture and recreation, and membership associations. However, very little is known about the large number of nonprofits that are scattered across virtually all other industries in Indiana where for-profit establishments dominate. This report provides an overview of nonprofit employment in all the other "minor" nonprofit industries.
