State of the Not for Profit Sector Survey - September 2014
Providing a Voice, Performance now and over the past year
Pro Bono Australia’s State of the Sector Survey 2014 undertaken in partnership with Community Council for Australia and Netbalance Research Institute seeks to provide a voice for all those with an interest in the Not for Profit sector – especially Pro Bono Australia’s subscribers and other stakeholders that contribute to the performance of the sector.
It is not an academic study, there are other surveys that serve that purpose. However, we have used questions which appeared in the 2013 and 2010 Election Manifesto Surveys and the 1200+ respondents in the 2014 survey are drawn from the same pool of sector stakeholders – sector leaders and senior managers, volunteers, advisors, and clients. The survey engaged respondents from all industries and sizes of Not for Profit organisations.
The survey findings are designed to prompt discussion and offer opinions from the sector. In addition to the many numbers, we focus on what respondents have said – their concerns, their hopes and most importantly their views on how to help the sector thrive.
