Large Majority Of Nonprofit Revenue From Government, Fee For Service

A new report recently released by the National Council of Nonprofits examined data about the nonprofit sector as it provides latest insight regarding nonprofits in the United States.

The new report, titled "Nonprofit Impact Matters: How America's Charitable Nonprofits Strengthen Communities and Improve Lives," outlined a number of challenges and other trends facing the nonprofit sector.
