The Center for Rural Studies was part of the team that contributed to the Vermont Community Foundation's new report Vermont's Nonprofit Sector. The report provides an in-depth look at the nonprofit sector - its scope, its challenges, and its opportunities - as seen by Vermonters and the state's nonprofit leaders.
The majority of the data in the report was collected via two statewide surveys conducted by CRS in the summer of 2010. The first survey of over 800 individuals throughout Vermont sampled Vermonters’ perceptions of the nonprofit sector. The second survey of nearly 500 nonprofit leaders around the state, investigated the collective outlook of Vermont’s nonprofit sector in the face of new, economic challenges.
CRS is proud to have been part of this effort to continue the conversation on the role, significance and trajectory of nonprofits in Vermont.
