2016 Northwest Nonprofit Capacity Report
A warm thanks to the 138 Montana nonprofit organizations who participated in the 2015 “State of the Sector” survey. The rest of us have the opportunity to learn from you as a result of the information you provided. We owe you our gratitude. Thanks also to our colleagues in the northwest: Foraker Group (Alaska), Idaho Nonprofit Center, Nonprofit Association of Oregon, and Washington Nonprofits.
Deep thanks also to the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for INVESTING in communities in the northwest and SUPPORTING the State of the Sector project. Thank you as well to Philanthropy Northwest and GiveGab for sponsoring this project.
This report represents 138 Montana nonprofits who responded to the State of the Sector survey in November 2015. The report includes information on nonprofit governance and management practices, including board engagement, program evaluation, written plans and information culture, mission achievement, collaboration and collective action, advocacy and policy, and more. Designed to indicate the health of the nonprofit sector, this is the fourth such survey done in association with State Associations in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Ratings are on a 1-10 scale (1 being lowest, 10 being highest) unless otherwise stated.
