The Capital of Nonprofits: Elevating Our Community and Its Economy

On February 9th, 2021, the Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence (INIE), Council on Culture & Arts (COCA), and United Partners for Human Services (UPHS) hosted a virtual town hall to reveal the findings of a recent local survey on the Big Bend community’s awareness of the significant role and impact that nonprofits have on our local economy.

Dr. Karen Cypers, Ph.D., partner, and Vice President of Research at Sachs Media, presented the survey and its results, followed by a moderated conversation with nonprofit leaders about the sector’s role in the community, myths and misconceptions uncovered by the survey, and how nonprofits can continue to serve as engines of local vitality and economy growth.
