Nonprofit organizations in Northeast Florida continue to strengthen and recover from the impacts of the Great Recession, but soft individual giving poses a significant challenge to the sector. These are among the findings of the 2015 State of the Sector report, a periodic look at the size, characteristics and financial health of those 501(c)3-designated organizations based in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties.
The State of the Sector research began in 2005 as a collaborative project of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund and the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida. To date, the study has collected and analyzed data on more than 1,600 organizations dating back to 1998.
The goal is to provide the proverbial 30,000-foot view of the sector, while recognizing its diversity and the varying roles played by different types of nonprofit organizations.
