Join us to learn the results of a new statewide study of the economic impact of the nonprofit sector. This report, Arizona Nonprofits: Economic Power, Positive Impact, sheds a new light on Arizona’s nonprofit sector. Gone are the days of viewing nonprofits as simple charities operating on shoestring budgets, heavily reliant on volunteers and donations to stay afloat.
This first-ever report shows that Arizona’s nonprofit sector—some 21,000 organizations strong—is a thriving network of social-purpose corporations and a powerful economic driver in our state, employing thousands of people and contributing significantly to the Gross State Product.
The research was conducted by ASU’s Seidman Research Institute in partnership with the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Innovation, and The Phoenix Philanthropy Group. Funding was provided by the Arizona Community Foundation, APS and the Industrial Development Authority of Maricopa County.
This event is open to leaders of any nonprofit organization serving Northern Arizona residents, including those serving the communities of Sedona, the Verde Valley and Yavapai County, as well as local business and government leadership. Representatives of the Arizona Community Foundation’s Sedona and Yavapai County affiliates will be in attendance to discuss the findings and network with nonprofit leaders serving their communities.
