NSC Nonprofit Leadership Convening 2012: The Nonprofit Sector’s Impact on Missouri’s Economy

The nonprofit sector employed more than 10 million people and according to a study by John Hopkins University, was the third largest private employer in 2010.  The study, “Holding the Fort: Nonprofit Employment During a Decade of Turmoil” shows how nonprofits have been “holding down the fort” for the entire US economy by creating jobs and employment at an average rate of 2.1% (while for-profit jobs have declined 0.6%).
