National COVID-19 Nonprofit Impact Report

Researchers have released a nationwide picture of COVID impacts. A total of 68 state level reports from 43 states covering over 21,000 nonprofit organizations have been compiled to provide a national level synthesis of COVID's impact on the nonprofit sector. The written report and a shared table summarizing the state reports is available at this link:  States of COVID-19:  Synthesis of State-level Nonprofit Reports on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Wisconsin COVID-19 Impact Study

The Helen Bader Institute (HBI), in collaboration with the Institute for Nonprofit Management Studies (INMS), conducted a series of surveys to assess the state of Wisconsin nonprofits after the onset of the coronavirus. Report One is available:  The COVID-19 Effect on Wisconsin's Nonprofit Sector. 

HBI and INMS also evaluated the impact of the pandemic on various sectors of nonprofit organizations. For details, see the reports on the COVID-19 Effect on Nonprofit Human Services  and on the COVID-19 Effect on Arts, Culture, & Humanities.


Jobs That Help provides information on nonprofit career opportunities in Wisconsin for both employers and job seekers. 

The Helen Bader Institute has developed recommendations to help nonprofits re-engage after COVID-19. Its report on Moving Forward will provide considerations to help you navigate a post-pandemic world.
