State of Nonprofit Transparency


It’s that time of year.

State of the union. State of the state. State of nonprofit transparency.

Last year, we released our first report on voluntary disclosure practices. You can learn more about our report and download a copy of it here.

My colleague Karen Rayzor and her team of interns have completed their research for the 2009 report. We are compiling the results from reviewing nearly two thousand nonprofit websites. We plan to publish the new report in the spring.

In the meantime, my colleague Vicki Nadal is writing a series of blog posts about last year’s recommendations and what we have learned from nonprofit leaders around the country who have commented on our recommendations.

We want to share these findings with you as we finish work on the 2009 report.
