[Infographic] The Rise of the Nonprofit Sector

November 16, 2013

This week's infographic underscores a basic fact familiar to many of you: the nonprofit sector is growing faster than the business and public sectors, providing millions of meaningful jobs while contributing billions of dollars to GDP. Whether this is a good thing, or an unsettling reflection of an economy that's stuck in neutral -- or maybe both -- is an open question. We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Other takeaways from the infographic:

  • In New England, nonprofits now employ 16 percent of all workers;
  • In 2011, 64.3 million Americans donated 7.9 billion hours of of community service, equal to $171 billion worth of paid work;
  • Nonprofits plan to double their use of technology in 2013.
