Nonprofit Needs Survey Results: Problems and Training Needs Edit Title

 This report provides results from the Non-Profit Needs Survey recently completed by nonprofit  executive directors.  This project is sponsored by CAN-DO, the Center for Advocacy, Nonprofits, and Donor Organizations, at the University of Texas at Arlington.
 The survey focused on determining the major problems that human service nonprofit organizations are currently facing and where training relating to these problems could be best obtained.
 The primary results indicate that the main areas of current concern are related to staff skills, abilities and technical know-how and they appear to have a significant impact on agency performance.  This report highlights some of the bigger issues identified, including specific skills that need improvement and areas that would benefit from formal training.  

These findings are important as they help identify areas for improvement which may lead to enhanced services and the prevention of financial loss.
The identification and understanding of these problem areas are important to not only improve agency functioning but to address additional impacts they may have on the agency. Respondents noted employee performance, morale and staff turnover as having increased negative results due to these issues. Agency problems also contributed to fiscal loss, amounts reported from as low as $100,000 to over $1 million; as well as loss in wages and limited scope of work.
CAN-DO, the sponsor of this research, is a university-affiliated research and training center that is dedicated to providing information and training to assist nonprofits overcome difficulties and overcome barriers. Faculty affiliates have decades of experience providing immediately useful information and insights.
These are some of the benefits of working with CAN-DO:
• Faculty consultants can provide information that helps you solve immediate problems;
• Trainings can improve staff and board members’ competencies across a wide variety of topics;
• New ideas regarding fundraising can lead to a healthier bottom line.
