Management and general expenses among public charities are relatively high. Fiscal PerformanceNORTH DAKOTA STATE DATA CENTER North Dakota State University An Equal Opportunity Institution [Year]Nonprofit Sector Study An Analysis of the Impact of the Nonprofit Sector in North Dakota: Challenges and Opportunities March 2009 Authors Chelsey Klinger Dr. Richard Rathge Contributors Ramona Danielson Karen Olson Kendra Erickson2 Nonprofit Sector Study: An Analysis of the Impact of the Nonprofit Sector in North Dakota FOREWORD The charitable nonprofit sector in North Dakota is a sizeable collection of diverse organizations that are both growing and greatly influencing the lives of people within the state through their support of numerous activities, programs, and initiatives. However, the extent and investment of these activities is relatively unknown. The purpose of this project is to raise awareness of the impact of the nonprofit sector in the state of North Dakota, to investigate where scarce resources are being dedicated throughout the charitable sphere, and to determine if that investment is effectively and efficiently delivered. Moreover, by informing nonprofit organizations, through the use of data, we hope to inspire action. Specifically, this action involves leaders taking positive steps towards making a difference in both North Dakota’s nonprofit community and in the lives of its residents. This project also serves to guide future efforts aimed at nonprofit sector performance improvement and to help the nonprofit sector achieve the greatest possible societal impact within the state. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This report is a study of North Dakota’s nonprofit sector commissioned by the Dakota Medical Foundation. The study is centered largely on data obtained from the tax returns filed by nonprofit organizations. It involved collecting and analyzing quantitative data via IRS tax Form 990/990-PFs (Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax) obtained from the IRS Business Master File from the National Center for Charitable Statistics at the Urban Institute and Form 990-PF (Return of Private Foundations) from the Foundation Center. The study focuses on the most recent reported data which in most cases are from 2007 or 2006.
