The 2020 Nonprofit Employment Report: Nonprofit Economic Data Bulletin no. 48

Autores/Participantes : Chelsea L. Newhouse, Lester M. Salamon

A new report from the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies finds that U.S. nonprofits maintained their position as the third largest employer in the U.S. economy. However, nonprofits face challenging times as a result of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, with projected job losses of over 1.6 million workers between March and May of 2020 – all at a time when demand for their services is growing. Complicating the situation further is the fact that although 98% of all nonprofit establishments fit the criteria for access to the federal government’s recent Paycheck Protection and Main Street Lending Programs as “small businesses”, well-documented challenges have faced nonprofits in accessing this government support, and federal agencies have so far failed to provide information on the extent to which such support has flowed to nonprofit organizations. These are just some of the major conclusions emerging from the “2020 Nonprofit Employment Report”. Drawing on the rich body of data generated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, the Hopkins report sheds important new light on recent nonprofit employment dynamics.
