National Study of America’s Nonprofit Sector Announced

Posted by on May 2, 2003


On April 29 the Corporation for National and Community Service and the USA Freedom Corps announced the launch of a new national study that will examine the capacity of America’s nonprofit and community and faith based organizations to use volunteers to meet important national needs.

The study will be conducted by the Urban Institute, which will survey more than 3,000 organizations across the country that address a variety of community needs and reflect a range of sizes and structures. The study is funded by a $300,000 donation from the UPS Foundation matched by the Corporation. "We know a lot about volunteers and why they serve," said Corporation CEO Leslie Lenkowsky. "Now we have a chance to learn in a systematic way how and why charities enlist volunteers, and what those charities need in order to maximize their efforts."
