America’s Nonprofits Face “Severe Shortage” Of Fundraisers

A new report on America’s multibillion-dollar nonprofit fundraising industry suggests it is on the brink of a staffing crisis that could affect millions of people. America’s 1.5 million-plus charitable organizations face a “severe shortage of qualified fundraisers” that could seriously restrict their efforts to raise critically needed funds, which, in turn, could impact millions of people served by them.

Nonprofits are looking hard to hire fundraising talent, with three in every 10 of those surveyed reporting current vacancies in their teams, mostly in major gift fundraising. Nearly 84 percent of nonprofits surveyed said they’re struggling to find qualified candidates, with almost half saying it’s “extremely challenging or nearly impossible” to find the right fit.

America’s nonprofit fundraising industry is colossal. The total charitable giving from all sources totaled nearly $450 billion in 2019. The sector contributes approximately a trillion dollars to the U.S. economy each year, which amounts to almost six percent of total GDP.
