MNA Surveys

MNA offers periodic surveys so that we can learn about your perspective on the ever-changing operating environment in which we all work.

Surveys can seem to be a bother, but rest assured your time is well spent when you take them. We use this information to guide our work, and to provide our government and funding partners with real time data on the nonprofit sector in Montana.

Nonprofit Finance Fund Survey Results


First launched in 2008 when economic crisis challenged the viability of many organizations, the Nonprofit Finance Fund Survey has been used over time to gauge the financial health and resiliency of the nonprofit sector. The NFF’s 2015 State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey results, using data from 5,451 respondents, show some indications of recovery, stabilization, and growth.


MNA Northwest Nonprofit Survey Report

Murdock-ReportFor five years, beginning in 2008, the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust has supported five key capacity building organizations serving nonprofits in the Pacific Northwest, the Montana Nonprofit Association among them.

The overall goal of this five-year initiative has been to build the capacity of these statewide organizations so that they, in turn, are better positioned to strengthen the nonprofits within their communities. One of the tools used to assess the effects of the Trust's effort is this survey.

Government Impact Survey Results

In October 2013, MNA launched a short survey to see how recent government actions and inactions were impacting our sector. Seventy organizations responded very quickly and we are pleased to present the results. As always, we give you our greatest thanks for your support and for the work you do to make Montana the last best place to live, work, and play.
