The Nonprofit Sector – We Are Powerful!
Nonprofits are a large and vital part of California’s economy, with nonprofit economic activity contributing 15% (or 1/6) of California’s Gross State Product (GSP).
Each year California nonprofits bring in at least $40 billion in revenue from out-of-state sources.
– Nearly 1 million people are employed by nonprofits in California, accounting for six percent of total state employment.
– California volunteers contribute more than $24.7 million in unpaid labor each year, the equivalent of 450,000 full-time jobs.
So, take some time today to celebrate your power, nonprofit folks, and if you are one of the millions of Californians that benefit from the work nonprofits do then reach out to your favorite nonprofit and say “Thanks!”
