Introduction

More than 33% of nonprofits in the United States are in danger of closing within two years in the aftermath of COVID-19 (2021 Candid and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy).  As of December 2020, an estimated 60,000 nonprofit employees have been laid off in Pennsylvania.

While many nonprofits found relief from the federal government by accessing relief made available through various federal programs, loans, and grants, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has not yet provided direct, designated relief clearly needed by their partners in the nonprofit sector, who provide state-mandated and grassroots services needed by our most vulnerable residents.

One way the state can provide this direct relief is by offering 100% to all nonprofit organizations, particularly reimbursable organizations (who pay the state back on a claim-by-claim basis).

SURVEY PURPOSE:
This survey is for our collective advocacy with our state elected officials to give the nonprofit sector relief from unemployment claims resulting from COVID-19.

If you have had any unemployment claims at all, please participate in this survey, and fill in as many of the fields as possible. 

ANONYMITY:
We would love to include your organization's name in the final results, but if you prefer to keep your organization's name anonymous, please include the city and county in which your main office is located. 

Finally, we ask for your contact information at the end of the survey only in case we have follow-up questions to what you submit.  Personal contact information will not be included in the final report.

THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!  TOGETHER, WE ARE STRONG!
