Purpose and Notes

The purpose of the survey entitled Rapid Response: PHL Nonprofits and COVID-19 Survey is to help government officials and funders better understand how COVID-19 is impacting nonprofit organizations in the region. The findings will be used to tailor response efforts to support our nonprofit community and ensure those in greatest need can access critical resources.

Below is a summary of the responses by counties served (not where the organization is located as each organization could have selected more than one county).

  • Please note that these reflect the experiences of the organizations who responded to this survey. While this provides important information that government and philanthropy does not otherwise have, this survey was made available by email lists, press release, and outreach efforts only. It may not provide a representative picture of the needs of the entire nonprofit community in the region.

  • Please also note that were not enough responses for some counties, especially those located in NJ, for conclusions to be representative of that county.

Counties Served

  • Most organizations serve PA counties. About 75% of organizations serve Philadelphia County.

  • The highest counts are in Philadelphia, Chester, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties.

  • Approximately 25% of organizations serve New Jersey counties, including Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties.
