Be “Spoken” and Be Counted!
Our local nonprofit sector needs YOU! The 2013 San Luis Obispo County Nonprofit Impact Study is currently being developed by Beacon Economics, in collaboration with the Central Coast Economic Forecast, and, for the first time in its history, the forecast will include a focus on the nonprofit sector. Toward that end, we’d like to invite you to participate in this important survey process. You’ll need to register to take the survey by June 24, 2013.
How You Can Get Involved
- Register your organization to receive the online survey. Register before June 24, 2013! Your organization needs to have a location in SLO County and you’ll need to identify an email address for the most appropriate individual to complete the survey on your organization’s behalf. Only one survey will be excepted per organization.
- Commit to completing the survey once you receive it. The contact for your nonprofit can expect the survey to include approximately 30 questions and to take 30-40 minutes to complete.
- Encourage other nonprofits to register and participate in this survey! Feel free to share this blog article to anyone you choose. The more organizations of varying budget sizes, leadership structures and social services areas we have, the more beneficial the data will be.
How You’ll Benefit
This survey offers an opportunity for the nonprofit sector to be recognized as a critical component of our community’s health. Please help us quantify the value of our nonprofit organizations and the varied contributions they make. A successful survey process will provide us with the data we need to create more cross-sector collaboration and support. Additionally, strong participation in this survey will warrant continued consideration of the nonprofit sector in future economic forecasts and allow for the collection of more long-term, longitudinal data.
Thank you, in advance, for ensuring your nonprofit participates in this survey. We appreciate your willingness to help us create a voice for our local nonprofit sector – and use it!
