Eighty percent of nonprofits in Pennsylvania have experienced a decline in revenue, while 87 percent have suffered some kind of negative impact as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, a report commissioned by the Pittsburgh Foundation, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations, the Forbes Funds, and the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, finds. Based on data collected from 808 organizations, or 2 percent of the state's nonprofits, the report, Impacts of COVID-19 on Pennsylvania Nonprofits (9 pages, PDF), found that respondents suffered revenue losses of $612 million and incurred additional operating expenses of $95.3 million, or a total economic impact of $708 million, and that the economic toll on all nonprofit organizations in the state is expected rise into the billions of dollars before the pandemic is over. According to the report, the impact on 2020 revenues ranged from 47 percent for the smallest organizations (annual revenues of under $100,000), to 24 percent for slightly larger organizations (those with annual revenues between $500,000 to $10 million), to 7 percent for larger organizations (those with annual revenues of more than $10 million).
