The Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC) has launched its first ever Needs Assessment Survey for New York Area nonprofits. As a leader in nonprofit management and capacity-building strategies, it’s vital that NPCC stay abreast of current trends and challenges that the nonprofit community faces. The responses will help NPCC to be a better champion for the nonprofit community—so that they can meet growing needs, address concerns and strengthen the collective voice of the nonprofit sector and the communities they serve.
NPCC serves as the voice and information source for New York nonprofits. An umbrella organization representing and serving over 1,400 member nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations throughout New York City, Long Island, and Westchester, NPCC is the largest such organization in the New York City area. It represents all types of nonprofits on sector-wide issues. Established in 1984, NPCC informs and connects nonprofit leaders, saves nonprofits money, helps them manage and govern themselves better, and protects and strengthens the entire nonprofit community’s relations with all levels of government.
NPCC was founded in 1984 to contest a government proposal to remove the charitable property tax exemption from many of NYC's nonprofit cultural institutions. Since inception, the organization has successfully defeated that proposal and later succeeded in obtaining other tax exemptions for nonprofits, saving them $25,000,000+ a year. Today, NPCC coordinates efforts at the national, state and local levels to promote equitable and least burdensome nonprofit regulations so that NY nonprofits can focus on their missions. The results gathered from responses will guide strategic programming decisions within NPCC as well as help identify sector-wide common trends and concerns relating to policy, government regulations, and nonprofit management.
