For the Love of Arkansas Nonprofits

SER Equity


Do you love Arkansas's nonprofits as much as we do? Then you'll absolutely love the 2018 Market Study of Arkansas Nonprofit Organizations.



We are so excited to have the Market Study of Arkansas Nonprofit Organizations  because this study has helped us look back to move forward. We know that strong nonprofits will be essential partners as we relentlessly pursue equity for all Arkansans.



The Market Study of Arkansas Nonprofit Organizations was completed by Communities Unlimited and released last November. The study was funded by the Arkansas Community Foundation, The Carl B. and Florence E. King Foundation, and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. 



The Market Study of Arkansas Nonprofit Organizations can be found on the Arkansas Impact Philanthropy website. This study is an example of how Arkansas funders collaborate to address one of our state's biggest challenges.

We are really proud of what the Market Study of Arkansas Nonprofit Organizations accomplished. The development team surveyed 441 organizations and interviewed 72 executive leaders at nonprofits across the state. The study describes three things to be true:



  • Arkansas's 14,000+ nonprofits serve every community, employ 90,000 people, and contribute $17 billion in annual revenue
  • National giving to nonprofits is declining, government funding is decreasing, and, as a result, nonprofits are investing time, talent, and treasure in fundraising for their survival at the expense of long-term planning and systems change
  • Nonprofits need multi-year support—not just for programs, but for general operations and to invest in their staff and leaders, without whom they would disappear
