• Description

In 2003, The Forbes Funds surveyed the population of nonprofits in Allegheny County. In 2006, The Forbes Funds again commissioned the Allegheny County Nonprofit Benchmark Survey, and, upon receiving responses, called upon researchers from Carnegie Mellon University not only to make sense of the data but also to contextualize the findings against what we already know about the county's nonprofit sector as well as what we know about the state of things generally. Findings from the Nonprofit Benchmark Survey demonstrate the resilience as well as the fraying of our region's nonprofit sector.
