State of Nonprofits in the Inland Empire
Submitted By: CSI/UCR
The future of California is inland, and the future of Southern California is the Inland Empire. As the nation’s 13th largest metropolitan area continues to rapidly grow, a strong and vibrant nonprofit sector can help produce a more inclusive and sustainable economy and society.
We find that nonprofits are strengthening the region in several ways. Nonprofit jobs in the Inland Empire pay significantly more than other private-sector jobs. The region leads California with the greatest share of
nonprofit startups since 2010. Foundation giving has increased significantly over the last decade.
Many nonprofit organizations are also having greater impact than ever before—by building coalitions, empowering communities, and strengthening their capacity for what we term “data, narrative, and action: DNA.” These developments have grown even stronger in the last two years, with investments in Census outreach totaling $5.2 million from public and private sources. In many ways, the region’s nonprofits have grown stronger and have made the social sector investment-ready.Report URL
