Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are currently more than 42,000 registered nonprofit organizations in the eight-county New York City area, representing not only one of the largest and most diverse nonprofit communities in the country, but also a significant part of the economy; accounting for over 18% of New York City's total private workforce and more than $118 billion in annual expenditures. However, the sector is vulnerable because we are underfunded and overburdened, lacking a unified voice to protect our interests or forward the principles that we know are critical to our work and societal good. Nonprofit New York believes that through our strategy of member-building and movement-building, we can address both needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To be able to meet their missions in ever-changing times, nonprofits must be excellently managed internally and able to respond to the external environment. Nonprofit New York believes that through our strategy of member-building and movement-building, we can address both needs. Member building supports our nonprofit members in understanding and achieving excellence in nonprofit management, so that they have more time and resources to focus on their mission. Through our education and trainings, both knowledge building and skills building, we help nonprofits more effectively manage their organization. Through our cost-savings programs, we help them identify and save money on services they need every day. Through our knowledge management, we give nonprofits the resources, tools, and templates that they need to implement their management practices without having to recreate systems that Nonprofit New York has already identified. Movement building supports the sector and protects each nonprofit in it. Through convening, we are able to identify needs of the sector and craft strategies and goals that will create a more sustainable environment. Through advocacy, we can assure that regulation and legislation is as fair and efficient as possible, saving nonprofits time and money by reducing duplication and unnecessary bureaucracy. In combining the two approaches, Nonprofit New York helps to create stability internally through best management practices, and externally through a fair and reasonable environment in which nonprofits operate.

Nonprofit New York encourages strong, transparent, and informed management and advocates for fair and reasonable nonprofit public policy. We have two primary goals, as established by our 2018-2020 Strategic Plan: member-building and movement building:

Member-Building – Nonprofit New York leads and encourages best practices in nonprofit management using our transformational Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence. Our theory of change is that by implementing the standards of each Key Area, nonprofits will be strong, nimble, and stable, and better able to achieve their mission. We endeavor to assist our members to collaborate and learn from one another's work, remain aware of evolving policies and practices that govern the nonprofit sector, and gain excellent management practices to navigate and flourish in this uncertain and changing environment.

Movement-Building – Nonprofit New York serves as the voice of the nonprofit sector, promoting and protecting nonprofits' ability to survive and thrive. We organize nonprofit leaders to use their expertise on behalf of the entire sector, to address systemic and regulatory issues that can create instability in nonprofits, and to advocate for policies that foster nonprofits' stability and impact.

Nonprofit New York is in the third year of a three year strategic plan that clearly outlines how Nonprofit New York will accomplish their goals. Part of that plan has been to streamline technology and workflow practices to increase staff capacity and allow them to focus on the goals at hand, instead of data entry as well as restructure the team to create new positions and increase staff capacity.

Nonprofit New York has recently embarked on a three year strategic plan. Due to the technological improvements made and realignment of our programming under Member-building and Movement-building, Nonprofit New York has made the following accomplishments:

1. Developed and launched the Nonprofit New York's Declaration of Nonprofit Rights, Nonprofit New York's bold vision for a powerful nonprofit sector. These guiding principles form the basis of our worldview of the sector's needs and potentials, guiding our day-to-day public policy work to meet those needs and potentials;

2. Provided a rich selection of information and guidance to nonprofits, including 46 free workshops and webinars; launching The Community, our online platform containing our Referral Center, Knowledge Center, and HelpLine; and creating new informational resources, such as the 2019 Nonprofit Salary Survey Report;

3. Saved member nonprofits over $4 million dollars through Nonprofit New York's Member Vendor Program; and,

4. Sold out our second Annual Best Nonprofit Conference. The only full-day conference focused on nonprofit management practices in the NYC-area.
