Opportunity to Benefit from ASU Graduate Student Assistance in Program Evaluation

Too Many Nonprofits?

Faculty and staff of the ASU Center for Nonprofit Leadership and Management are called upon frequently to provide technical assistance across a range of nonprofit/philanthropic issues to individuals and organizations in the sector. This response occasionally intersects with a belief shared in some circles that there are too many nonprofits in operation today. In a recent piece in the Arizona Daily Star, Steve Alley, CEO of the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, opines that the question of whether there are too many nonprofits misses the point entirely if those who pose the questions are concerned as much about nonprofit effectiveness as they are about nonprofit efficiency.
