Nonprofit health, human services organizations expanding to meet growing demands

Nonprofit organizations in health and human services are expanding the extent of their mission and staffing amid growing demand for services, according to a study from The BDO Institute for Nonprofit Excellence.

For the study, BDO surveyed 200 nonprofit organizations in various sectors, including health and human services. Health and human services nonprofit organizations, such as hospitals, as well as behavioral and community health organizations, accounted for 35 percent of respondents.

Three survey findings:

1. Thirty-one percent of health and human services organizations expanded their mission in the last year.

2. At the same time, 17 percent of health and human services nonprofits cited growing and expanding staff as their top priority in 2019.

3. Most health and human services organizations (65 percent) reported that more than 25 percent of their funders sought more information on organization outcomes and influence compared to previous years.
