VOLUNTEER RESEARCH ASSISTANT

Independent Researchers

Date Posted: 3/16/2021

Salary: Unpaid - this is a professional development opportunity

Description: Over the past year, nonprofits have had to pivot and adapt during significant disruption. While many polls and surveys have sought out how nonprofits managed but there is still a need for a deep dive research project looking at multiple angles to extract strategies for handling crises in the future. How did nonprofits handle the uncertainty? What was the "secret" for nonprofits that found success? Those reading our findings can utilize these ‘lessons learned’, analyses, and recommendations as they think about how to proactively build a sustainable team that can withstand major obstacles. We are seeking a volunteer to support this research. This is a project that we are proud of but we understand we cannot do this alone. We envision that this volunteer nonprofit leader would be dedicating 5-10 hours per week researching the 990s and customized benchmarking data, and drawing analyses and trends to be used in the book. This volunteer would work directly with the other leaders on this research project and will have exposure to nonprofits across the country as well as be able to leverage the insights from this research in real-time.
