Why and how to complete our survey and our thank you's
We're seeking the help of nonprofit founders across America, like you, to complete a unique study. You can help us by completing an important survey that covers how you’ve successfully grown your initiative even if it’s just a few years old. Your participation in this important research will go a long way in helping NICE train and support the next generation of nonprofit founders. And it will help the nonprofit community better understand the special role of founders and their knowledge.
We want to know what has and hasn’t worked for you as you’ve built your initiative. In order to do this, we’ve compiled a questionnaire that will take just 20-25 minutes. These questions are focused on different aspects of your nonprofit such as fundraising, staff, the board, programs, etc. We’re asking for your candid input covering both your successes and your “learning experiences”. Give an honest response (all kept confidential) and elaborate whenever possible.
This questionnaire is comprised of 47 multiple-choice, ranked, and “Yes/No” questions with room for comments. We ask that you expound on your answers at your option. If you happen to have founded more than one nonprofit, please select the one where you recall the most current data. Remember to click "Done" at the end when you've completed the questionnaire.
