This week in fun state budget surveys: How has your nonprofit been affected by the impasse?

Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations wants to know how the impasse has affected nonprofits' financials, staff, operations and clients.

It’s the same old conversation — Pennsylvania still doesn’t have a 2015-2016 state budget.

Way back in November, Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations announced a campaign called PAPeopleCount, meant to mobilize nonprofit leadership organizations “to demand a state budget that fully funds human services.”

Philadelphia’s own Philanthropy Network announced its support for the campaign soon after.

We’re more powerful if we work together to really push for full funding of the human services in the budget, and to work quickly and to try to get this crisis ended,” Maari Porter, executive director of the Philanthropy Network, told us at the time. “But [we] also [need] to look at how to avoid this going forward and to think about reform that would not hold human services hostage.”

Now, PANO is asking nonprofits how their financials, staff, operations and clients have since been affected by the impasse. Answers are confidential and will be used to encourage legislation protecting nonprofit organizations from being negatively affected by future state budget standstills.

Take the survey

Recently we told you about a similar survey put forth by Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool Youth Development Network. Another day, another fun survey about how devastated your organization is by the state budget impasse, we suppose.
