Our feature article this week shares a finding that many nonprofit employers already know. “Employment in the nonprofit sector fell by 1.6 million during the pandemic, according to HUB’s report, then decreased further during the Great Resignation. In addition, the tight labor market increased talent competition, leaving a large number of nonprofits short-staffed.”

4 Critical Threats Nonprofits Will Face in 2023

From the state of the market to increased cyber risk, here are four challenges nonprofit organizations should keep in mind as they move into 2023.

Every quarter of society was presented with challenges that began with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the nonprofit sector was no exception. Ongoing economic volatility has placed even more strain on nonprofits as they face greater demand for their services, disruption of operations due to labor shortages and uncertainty over funding.

Through it all, nonprofits have continued to provide essential services — services that, in many cases, the for-profit sector doesn’t address.

According to a 2023 Nonprofit Outlook report from HUB and other sources, here are some of the risk management areas nonprofit boards and staff will need to have their eye on as we move into 2023 if they are to survive and thrive.

Challenge No. 1: Economic Viability
Nonprofit organizations, especially in the health and human services (HHS) sector, have experienced an increased demand for their services over the past few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While numerous nonprofits saw an accompanying surge in federal funding and donations, they are now challenged with finding financial stability as that federal support and other funding streams taper off.

Given that inflation reached a 40-year high in June and the S&P 500 is down 15% year-over-year, donors are pessimistic about the economic forecast. While the amount of money for crisis-related causes rose, the number of donors resumed a more than 10-year decline in 2022, according to Independent Sector’s Health of the U.S. Nonprofit Sector Quarterly Review, released in September 2022.

U.S. nonprofits, a valuable contributor to the economy, added $1.4 trillion in the second quarter of 2022 in fees, service charges, government payments and philanthropy, as reported in the Health of the U.S. Nonprofit Sector Quarterly Review. While nonprofits contribute significantly to the economy, most have limited resources.

Finances have been further strained for nonprofits that dipped into their reserves or borrowed to get through the pandemic, The Urban Institute reported in Nonprofit Trends and Impacts 2021. The financial pressures experienced during inflation include reduced donations, shrinking government funds and rising operating costs.

From an insurance perspective, directors will also need to plan for increased insurance rates, including cyber, automobile, general liability, property insurance, and umbrella and excess liability, as HUB forecasts in its Nonprofit Industry Rate Outlook.

When resources are tight, the focus should be on innovative solutions to achieve efficiency. HUB encourages organizations to align with partners across nonprofits and even across sectors to leverage their paid and voluntary workforce. Following best practices in fundraising will always include diversifying funding sources, but efficiencies can be reached through partnerships with complementary nonprofits to maximize the pool of potential donors.

Nonprofit leaders would be wise to develop a communication strategy to pinpoint and reach their target audience. To remain relevant to donors, nonprofits can leverage technology, identify the appropriate medium and utilize social media to engage supporters. They can also create additional giving opportunities through storytelling, testimonials, pictures and graphics that communicate measurable outcomes to demonstrate impact.

Challenge No. 2: Talent Shortages
Nonprofits as a sector are the third-largest private employer in the U.S., with 12.3 million employees — 81% of whom are in health and human services, reports Independent Sector in its Quarterly Snapshot. Read more...
