Nonprofits Face Rising Demand, Shrinking Resources

Press Release

April 10, 2014

The imbalance of increasing demand for services and declining resources to meet that demand is continuing to get worse for nonprofits, according to new data released on April 7, by the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF). In response to their annual State of the Sector survey, NFF give this comparison of National and Utah Nonprofit statistics for fiscal year 2013:

  • National: 80 percent of respondents reported an increase in demand for services. Utah: 76 percent of respondent nonprofit organizations reported an increase in demand for services.

  • National: 56 percent were unable to meet demand in 2013—the highest reported in the survey’s history. Utah: 48 percent were unable to meet demand in 2013.
  • National: 28 percent ended FY2013 with an operating deficit and 55 percent have three months or less cash on-hand. Utah: 34 percent ended FY’13 with an operating deficit and 48 percent have three months or less cash on hand.
  • National: Most nonprofits (70 percent) reported that funders are asking for impact metrics in reports, but are not covering the costs necessary to implement measurement systems. Utah: 81 percent of nonprofit funders are asking for impact metrics in reports, and only 5 percent always cover the cost of impact measurement.
