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, the majority of human services nonprofits (57%) develop performance measures annually or semi-annually. About 27% of the responding organizations develop performance measures more frequently such as quarterly, monthly, or even weekly. Less than 5% of the responding organizations said they never develop performance measures. To see more NORP survey results, click here.

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
