Nonprofits are more important than ever, not only through their various health, human service, and education, but also in their significant contribution to the overall economy. While there is considerable focus on the public and private sectors of our economy, the nonprofit sector’s economic contributions draw little attention. Providing both the state’s elected officials and its nonprofit sector with clear, concise, and accurate information on the breadth and financial scope of the nonprofit sector provides factual support for the investment in the services and resources nonprofits supply. The Florida Nonprofit Alliance has commissioned a tailored report that provides an overview of Florida’s nonprofits and their positive economic impact on the State of Florida.


  • Understand the contribution the nonprofit sector makes to statewide employment and to highlight its significance and economic contribution to our overall economy.
  • Equip nonprofit leaders to use the data dashboard to get data on social function and number of nonprofits across the state
  • Empower nonprofit leaders to use data to discuss the importance of the sector with individual legislators
