Philanthropy and Nonprofits

Few other organizations have weathered the barrage of challenges which have confronted most nonprofits in the Carolinas over the last few years. On the heels of the Great Recession, foundations froze grant-making, corporations slashed charitable giving and individuals held their wallets a little tighter. At the same time, demand for services spiked even more dramatically than the number of job loses and foreclosures in the region. On this program, we examine whether these trends are continuing into 2013 and if the growth of the nonprofit sector in the Carolinas is sustainable in an era of economic and philanthropic uncertainty. Our panel includes Mac Bennett of the United Way of the Midlands, Ran Coble of the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research, David Heinen of the N.C. Center for Nonprofits, and Russell Stall of Greenville Forward.
