COVID-19 Survey #2 Is Now Live

How have your communities been impacted?

The COVID-19 Effect on Wisconsin’s Nonprofit Sector is a statewide collaboration among faculty and staff at many University of Wisconsin System campuses, including UW-Milwaukee, UW-Whitewater, UW-Madison, UW-Green Bay, UW-Parkside, and UW-Oshkosh.

As well all know, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine measures have been (in many cases) devastating, with potentially long-lasting effects on nonprofit organizations throughout the state. This ongoing study aims to provide real-time data to government officials, foundations, and other decision-makers about the current social and economic conditions facing nonprofits and the need for immediate and long-term support. More information on the overall project can be found on the HBI website.

This involves a series of follow-up surveys into 2021 to track change, stimulus funding effectiveness, and overall sector recovery. Participants are encouraged to take part throughout the project to provide a stronger understanding of how their organizations, and the sector overall, are managing through these challenges. The report on the findings of Survey #1, which ran April 14-29, can be downloaded here.
