The Nonprofit Organization Research Panel (NORP) is an opt-in email panel of nonprofit organizations. It contributes to advancing knowledge and practice in the nonprofit sector, and can be used to improve decision making in your organization.

Participating nonprofit organizations have exclusive access to the NORP study results to learn about how other nonprofits operate under the uncertain circumstances of today. The NORP study results will also help guide policy makers and funding agencies to make informed decisions that affect the important work that nonprofit organizations do.
According to a recent NORP survey, three quarters of nonprofit organizations (75.48%) have been involved in partnership(s) with other organizations, including other nonprofits, government agencies, and private business corporations during the last 12 months. Through partnerships, nonprofits pool financial resources, knowledge, skills and other resources to understand and respond to complex problems. More than half of the nonprofit leaders who took a recent survey (55.53%) strongly agree that "nonprofits generally benefit from entering into partnerships with other entities," and about a third respondents somewhat agree with the idea.

Important Facts about the Nonprofit Organization Research Panel (NORP)

The leaders of the selected nonprofit organizations are invited to be part of the NORP to share their experiences in the field. Survey responses allow the nonprofit sector to address challenges and opportunities by drawing on lessons learned from other nonprofit organizations.
The NORP enforces a strict privacy policy: All answers are confidential and used for research purposes only. Study results are published in aggregate or summary form, and no individual organization's information will be shared or identifiable.
NORP members receive e-invitations to participate in occasional web-based surveys (2 to 4 times a year) about managing nonprofit organizations; however, participation in the NORP survey series is entirely voluntary.
The NORP is housed at Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies and supports applied research in nonprofit management. For questions and/or comments about the NORP project, you can contact the research team at
