Some Arizona Nonprofits May Not Overcome Virus-Driven Losses

Nearly half of nonprofits in Arizona will be unable to serve the public within the next month because of the heavy toll brought by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Arizona State University has released a new survey that found many nonprofits are facing bleak prospects because of losses in revenue and volunteering.

While some programs like food banks and childcare are seeing their demand balloon, other nonprofits such as performing arts groups continue to spiral. The non-profits surveyed cited cancellations of major fundraisers and few donations because of rising unemployment.

Stay-at-home orders also forced groups to cease in-person programs.

Governor Doug Ducey has extended Arizona’s Stay-at-home order through May 15th.
