The Listening Post Project seeks to “take the pulse” of the nonprofit sector by fielding surveys on timely issues for nonprofits and making sure the findings are broadly disseminated to the sector and beyond. In the past year, we have covered cutting-edge topics such as what nonprofits want from the new presidential administration and how they are faring in the economic downturn.
Most recently we have gathered extremely valuable data on the state of nonprofit healthcare benefits and pensions,which have been instrumental in helping to get nonprofits on the national policy agenda.
As 2010 approaches, we want to ensure that the Listening Post Project remains at the forefront of knowledge-gathering for the nonprofit sector. We will be fielding a survey on nonprofit innovations and performance measurement in early January.
