All too often our community, corporate and government leaders do not recognize the powerful force represented by the nonprofit sector in our communities and our state. We are second to none in our value to the economic well-being of our communities. In fact, if not for us, there wouldn’t BE a community.
Between 2006 and 2010, Arkansas nonprofits accounted for $46,393,390,998 in revenue with an economic impact of $13.5 billion, AND we employed almost 7% of Arkansas’s available labor force which is almost 100,000 workers. This report is an important tool in helping our leaders understand the importance and contribution of our nonprofits in Arkansas communities. The report includes maps that show how nonprofits are funded, where the nonprofit labor force is, how nonprofit organizations are distributed throughout the state and much more.
Combine this critical information with your nonprofit’s work in the community to demonstrate your organization’s impact in your community. It’s time to tell the story of the value of the work we do throughout Arkansas.
