Colorado Nonprofit Economic Impact Report
The Association, in partnership with Community Resource Center, Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships, Center for Nonprofit Excellence, Colorado Association of Funders, and the University of Colorado Denver School of Public Affairs, will be releasing an economic impact study within the next year. The nonprofit sector contributes to Colorado’s overall economy in a significant way. To demonstrate the economic impact of Colorado’s nonprofit sector, both statewide and locally, we are planning to collect, analyze and report economic impact data.
As part of our preparation work, we are interested in getting feedback from nonprofits on the ways you might benefit from and use the information reported in an economic impact study. Complete our pre-assessment survey today in order to let us know what information you’d like for us to collect and how you would use the information from the study.
