The Nonprofit Almanac, Ninth Edition, completely updated to include the most recent data available,
assembles into one compact and well-organized volume an accessible and reader-friendly bible of data on America’s extraordinary and rapidly growing civic sector. In many cases, the data cover spans of ten years or more, allowing for a detailed retrospective look at trends in the sector. This edition, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Urban Institute’s Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy, traces the growth of nonprofits in the post-recession period, providing insights into which subsectors have not fully recovered from the recession and which flourished throughout the period. Other key results include the shifting of revenue streams for nonprofits, as well as post-recession trends in giving and volunteering. New to this edition is a series of analyses on nonprofit growth and finances at the metropolitan level. Building on the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy’s two decades of experience in analyzing the size, scope, and performance of the nonprofit field, The Nonprofit Almanac, Ninth Edition, is an invaluable reference for managers of nonprofit organizations, foundations, and corporate social responsibility programs, as well as scholars, teachers, students, and journalists.
Previous edition praise: A copy of The Nonprofit Almanac should be on the bookshelf—or, even better, at the right hand—of anyone seriously interested in civil society in the United States.
