The Idaho Nonprofit Center provides research and reporting on sector-wide topics affecting Idaho nonprofits. Annually the Center publishes resources that nonprofits find helpful in grant writing and also for general sector-specific information. You can find an annual State of the Sector report, bi-annual Economic Impact Report and bi-annual Nonprofit Compensation Report.

In addition to the self-published reports we have provided links below to additional resources and information that may be useful to you.
